Thanks for the report!
Was Balsa in the process of closing when this happened? I looked at the code indicated in the backtrace, and it looks like it could be a problem cleaning up when Balsa closes.
A patch has been pushed to the git master branch that should solve this problem. I could not reproduce the SEGV, so I cannot vouch for the fix. If you continue to see the problem when a new version of Balsa is released, please reopen the bug!
Thanks again for reporting!
Yes, it happened just after the closing of Balsa.
OK, it should be fixed by the patch. Balsa shows some messages in the status bar at the foot of the window for 5 seconds, and if the timer expires while Balsa is shutting down, the status bar has sometimes been destroyed before Balsa tries to clear the message. That happens only rarely, which is why it hasn't been fixed before!
This message is a reminder that Fedora 25 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 25. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 25 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 25 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2017-12-12. Fedora 25 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
