this should always refer to the instance of rcube_webmail which is
also exposed in a global variable (in window scope) named 'rcmail'.

enigma.js is build in a way that it extends the rcube_webmail
prototype which in turn means that you have the same global instance
of rcube_webmail in 'this'. Therefore I don't fully understand what
problems you're running into. Maybe you can give us some more concrete
hints in terms of file names and line numbers.
