* Fix for bug #584837 - Find dialog fails to move caret to desired
  location in Thunderbird

* Fix for bug #568658 - Sometimes Orca announces the wrong subject in
  Thunderbird.  This change causes us to dump the pyatspi cache if

  not have bogus table data hanging around.

  needs to be improved
