Description of problem:
Thunderbird crashes if you close more than one compose window.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time for multiple users accross multiple machines.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start thunderbird.
2. Click on "Write" more than once to open more than one Compose window.
3. Close all Compose windows.
Actual results:
Thunderbird exits with a return code of 139.

Expected results:
Thunderbird not to exit.

Additional info:
I opened this issue with bug (432573).  It was then incorrectly merged with
bug (432702) and then both bugs were subsequently closed.  The problem remains
so I asked that the bug be re-opened, but got no response so I am filing 
a new bug.

jonathan auerbach from noaa.gov correctly states that this issue exists
with rhel4 as well as rhel5.

sometimes, immediately after an e-mail is sent, a similar crash occurs (as soon
as the sending mail message window closes). The mail is copied to my send mail
folder and, I suspect, has been successfully sent. This is on

Just an additional note that might help isolate the problem. The latest
Thunderbird (20071031) from Mozilla doesn't seem to suffer from this
issue. However, on my system I am running:

(switching to the 2.10.13-1.fc6 ones fixed a crash issue in firefox (bug 430140))
