I upgraded my Ubuntu AMD 64 bit machine to 10.04. With that came Mozilla Thunderbird 3, which works OK for a while than just disappears.
Am I alone in having this problem?

How about you search the bug reports at launchpad and maybe you will find some relevant answers to your problem.

Is there any information in /var/log/messages that would include an error messages?

I suggest that you disable the indexing option of Thunderbird 3 as a starting point to see if that is causing the process to die. I was having similar problems with TB3 on a 64 bit system about a month ago.
To do this:
Tools -> Options -> Advanced
Under General Tab, uncheck the indexer option.

I am sitting on a AMD64 running Ubuntu (Dual with Mint) and I have had a problem with Thunderbird hanging the system but never disappearing. Thunderbird gets confused when your files are large - especially Archive - and that is overcome by compacting the folders.
If it were me I would back up my files and then do a complete removal and reinstall.
When you say disappears if you mean from the menu you might right click on the menu and select "reload plugings" to put it back.
A little more help as to what's going on when it disappears would help a bit too.
