Whatever you may have done prior to the crash, please don't forget to include such information and whether the problem is reproducible.

Can you reproduce it with Claws Mail 3.8.1 in updates-testing?

Comment 8 Lars Schotte 2012-08-23 07:15:20 EDT
sorry, i can not reproduce it, at least i do not know how.

when i remember right, it crashed just after start so, there must have been busy I/O and he checked mail on start and i clicked on the inbox while he was checking it.

however, such crashes on concurrent I/O happen often with claws-mail. i am using claws-mail for some time now and i experienced a lot of them already, but they are not critical, because you just restart it and then it works. i never had lost data or such. that's why claws-mail is my favourite mail client. it crashes less ofthen then the others and is FAR more reliable ;-)
Comment 9 Michael Schwendt 2013-02-28 04:26:57 EST
Such issues are best reported directly into the upstream bug tracker:

That would make it much easier for developers to talk to you. That developers know better what corner-case problems with the user-interface are known and what is being planned to prevent them. All I know at present is that things like trying to close windows (or the Claws Mail main window) with multiple mouse-clicks while it is still working on something can become problematic. For this particular problem, the backtrace referred to exiting Claws Mail and unloading plug-ins, and apparently the main window key press event came afterwards.
Comment 10 Fedora End Of Life 2013-07-03 15:41:19 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '17'.

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 17'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 17 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  change the 
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

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.
Comment 11 Fedora End Of Life 2013-07-31 14:30:52 EDT
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 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.
