abrt 1.0.9 detected a crash.
Attached file: backtrace
reason: Process /usr/lib64/thunderbird-3.0/thunderbird-bin was killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)
release: Fedora release 12 (Constantine)
I do not know the cause of the segment fault. I discovered it would not segment fault if I down my ethernet, ifdown eth0.
I discovered it would not segment fault if I changed the server name for the IMAP service for mail for aol.com.
With an incorrect imap service name, imap.aol.comx, thunderbird comes up, but obviously cannot access imap.aol.com.
This segment fault occurs when I use the correct service name, imap.aol.com, and thunderbird comes up.
I tried to recreate my mail.aol.com account...from the menu Edit/Account Settings, I removed my aol.com account,
and readded it. Edit/Account Settings found the aol.com imap and smtp service--thunderbird again segment fault when I used the correct server name, imap.aol.com, but did not segment fault when I disabled imap service to aol.com (by changing the server name to imap.aol.comx).
I suspect two problems.
I suspect aol.com is doing something in the imap service they should not.
I suspect thunderbird is not happening the resulting behavior of imap.aol.com.
I expect imap.aol.com will fix whatever their problem is hiding the thunderbird problem.
Of course, this is all speculation on my part, and I am probably very wrong as to what is actually happening,
but this is the best guess I can give of what I think is happening.
How to reproduce
1. Have an aol.com mail account defined
2. Start thunderbird

This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '12'.
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 prior to Fedora 12's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 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 please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
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.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 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.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
