I will be tracking branch builds till the release of Thunderbird 1.5 since most (~>90%) activity is taking place on the Gecko 1.8 branch, which will become Thunderbird 1.5 in the future. Do note that some (not all) of the fixes above might already have made it to Thunderbird 1.5 Beta 1, which was released off the branch.
