From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:0.9.8+)
BuildID:    2002020603

Mail/Mozilla (and Netscape 6.2 if it matters) crashes when I try to forward
messages from certain senders. For example, with a message selected, if I hit
the Forward button, Mozilla/Netscape crashes. Again, this doesn't happen with
every message, just certain people. Maybe they've been afflicted with some
unknown disease, or maybe they're on a blacklist somewhere, but it is annoying.

Reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Receive message from someone.
2. Try to Forward the message to someone else by selecting the message and
clicking the Forward button.
3. Mozilla (moz0.9.8)/Netscape (6.2) crash.
4. Launch Mozilla (or Netscape 6.2) again.
5. Select message.
6. Click the Forward button; Moz (or Netscape) crashes.
7. Lather.
8. Rinse.
9. Repeat.

Actual Results:  See Steps 7-9.

Expected Results:  After clicking the Forward button, a new message window
should have appeared, with the message to be forwarded inline and ready for me
to add a new recipient and comments.

I didn't receive any sort of Talkbalk request when Moz/Net crashed, or when I
restarted the app.

Chuck, can you still reproduce this problem using a more current build?

Also, note that Mozilla on Mac OS X doesn't include TalkBack. You have to enable
Crash Reports in the Console application.
