When composing an email, as soon as I click the attachment button in the toolbar
or choose that option from the menu, all open Mozilla applications (browser and
email) crash.  Using Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; NetBSD i386; en-US; rv:1.1)
Gecko/20020925 built from NetBSD package sources (mozilla-1.1nb1)

I have seen a similar problem with Thunderbird 1.0 running on Windows XP service
pack 2. 

It is currently repeatable since this power up, no idea when the last time was
that I succesful sent an attachment so I can't check what has changed since then
and I don't know if the problem will be reproducable after after after I reboot yet.

The only diference with XP is that thunderbird locks up rather than crashes but
I exepct this is more to do with the the XP kernel VM rather than the bug is

I don't think my install has the reporting agent in (plus I don't know how to
force a core dump to be sent) so any advice on how I can help would be
appreciated (while the bug is still reproducable).
This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
