*** Bug 432573 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I request a re-opening of this ticket for the following reasons...
1. This issue is not closed because the newly released version of thunderbird,
188.8.131.52-9.el5_1, does NOT fix the problem. I can still crash thunderbird
by openening multiple Compose windows and then closing them.
2. As auerbach pointed out, this problem exists on rhel4 as well.
confirming what K.Scott Rowe notes:
184.108.40.206-9.el5_1 still crashes as described.
RH4 version: thunderbird-220.127.116.11-8.el4 crashes under same circumstances. We are
downgrading users to thunderbird-18.104.22.168-7.el4 to work around this issue.
Then I suggest that is a different crash and deserving of a different bug.
RHEL4 was not affected by the linker error that we corrected with this bug and
Bug 432573 noted this issue from the get-go occurring also on RH4 yet you marked
it as a duplicate (Comment #9).
so, maybe just reopen that one...
