Description of problem:
With the latest patched FC11 (thunderbird 3.0beta4), a copy/paste from jedit to a new message in thunderbird make it crash
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Sorry, I didn't know where to fill this bug since I couldn't find if it's related to thunderbird and/or java and/or Xorg
Have a Dell Precision 390 (Nvidia Quadro driver)
Download jedit and run it with "java -jar installpath/jedit.jar"
Steps to Reproduce:
write Hello in jedit
copy the string with ctrl+c
open a new message on thunderbird
paste with ctrl+v
thunderbird crashes, and even worse, go on crashing until you close jedit.
paste into thunderbird
I tried with different versions of java : the one by default from Fedora and the latest jre from Sun. It always crash.
I tried with nouveau, vesa and akmod-nvidia driver : it goes on crashing.
I tried on another Precision 390 : same crash
It also crashes when I use the middle mouse button.
It doesn't crash if I choose "paste without formatting"
I tried with several other Dell stations (without quadro videocard) : It didn't crash.
I don't know how to do further investigations since I have no errors in Xorg logfile but feel free to ask me to do further testings since it's a blocking bug for my users.
OK, let's try to find out what actually is going on:
First of all, could we get output of the command
rpm -qa *xulrun* *firefox* *mozilla* *flash* *plugin*
Please also install firefox-debuginfo (debuginfo-install is from
Then run firefox with a parameter -g. That will start firefox running inside of gdb debugger. Then use command run and do whatever you did to make firefox crash. When it happens, you should go back to the gdb and run
(gdb) thread apply all backtrace
This produces usually many screens of the text. Copy all of them into a text editor and attach the file to the bug as an uncompressed attachment.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.

Thank you !
As you can see in the attached file, it crashes after complaning of a "missing" strcmp.S file.
But I'm not expert enough to know if it's something missing for thunderbird or for gdb.
Below are the versions used (there was a fresh upgrade from thunderbird this morning, but this bug remains)
[root@mercantour ~]# rpm -qa *xulrun* *thunderbird* *mozilla* *flash* *plugin*
