thunderbird migration problem


When TB starts up it *creates* a .icedove directory even
though there is a valid .thunderbird directory. This seems
to be an error according of the migration docs that I can
find. Then when I shutdown and startup again I get a big
message about a migration problem because there is both and
.icedove and .thunderbird directory. So, I delete the
.icedove directory and it starts up fine and correctly, but
creates an .icedove directory! As they say on TV, wash,
rinse, repeat!!

I am running Stretch and TB 52.8.0

TIA for any hints on how to stop this madness!
