comment: Clicked on Inbox icon within an account folder. Cursor "spun" for about 30 secs, then application crashed. Attempted to reproduce...no joy. Mailing list does document that there are intermittent issues with large Gmail IMAP folders.
reason: Process /usr/bin/claws-mail was killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)

Almost. ;) The backtrace you've attached tells a different story:
| #57 0x0000000000476a19 in alertpanel_create (title=<optimized out>,
| message=0x2ea6060 "Claws Mail needs network access in order to access
| the IMAP server.\n\nYou're working offline. Override for 10 minutes?",
Activating offline mode (or losing network access) while Claws Mail is busy handling IMAP, leads to crashes as a side-effect, e.g. due to heap corruption. For example, but not limited to bug 569478. There are several open tickets, also upstream.
Interesting...network connectivity was maintained (surfing with Firefox while Claws-Mail was busy), and I don't remember clicking the offline/online icon -- but definitely could have.
I see, as you point out, "Claws Mail needs network access in order to access the IMAP server." in #57-#59; should have read the backtrace more closely -- lack of attention to detail is somewhat embarrassing;o)
Read your upstream bug report...and, if the event reoccurs, will test the reproduction steps.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 16 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 16. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '16'.
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 16'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 16 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 to click on
"Clone This Bug" and open it against that version of Fedora.
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 16 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-02-12. Fedora 16 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.
