I've had no problems running the same binary with different profiles,
one with TorBirdy and one without. I haven't been able to observe any
leaks. I use Linux and run Thunderbird something like:

/path/to/thunderbird -profile /path/to/profile/

Unlike Firefox, --no-remote doesn't seem to be needed under Thunderbird.
