Description of problem:
The new version from Fedora Core 2 updates segfaults regularly. It is
probably a problem with the mail component of mozilla, as I did not
yet see the segfaults when I did not open the Mail window. If I have
the mail window open mozilla goes away with segfault after a few minutes.
The segfault happens even when I'm currently not in the mail window,
so I suspect it could be related to the checking for new mail.
Also there was no announcement for this mozilla Version on the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open mozilla Mail window
2. Wait some minutes
Actual Results: segfault

A ddd session with a stack backtrace
I hope you can use this backtrace, ddd complained about a frozen mouse and
tried to continue mozilla, so mozilla already exited after the segfault and so
the backtrace could not access the process memory.

Now I got a better stackbacktrace (using directly gdb)
I now have a better stack backtrace. This backtrace aids my assumption that the
mail part of mozÃlla is the culprit, as the crash happens in
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Closing per lack of response. Note that FC1 and FC2 are no longer
supported even by Fedora Legacy. Please install a still supported
version and retest. If this still occurs on FC3 or FC4 and is a
security issue, please assign to that version and Fedora Legacy. If it still
occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct version.
