FWIW, I'm running Thunderbird and emacs 21.4 on gnewsense-kde and have
the same behavior.

Then it looks more like a malfunction in Thunderbird ...

Ken, the original poster, is using Thunderbird 2.0pre (X11/20070214), you are using Thunderbird (X11/20070104) – or you need to tell Thunderbird that you are composing in UTF-8. I think in this millennium the modern Linuxen use UTF-8 internally, and when a client, such as Thunderbird, claims to be UTF-8 aware, then the X selection is not converted – which would be Thunderbird's task, because it's Thunderbird who "knows" which encodings are used inside its "buffers."

(I found Thunderbird a bit troublesome in its way to handle encodings. If I would use it more often than once in a month I would have written a few bug reports.)
