If we fail to startup a message compose window, user gets the message: "Composer dead : An error occured while creating a message compose window. Please try again." This doesn't seem like a good message, especially the "Please try again." Seems to imply that the app has random errors and trying again will work!

Hey, what do you do when a bug (related to this one, sort of) has not been confirmed since August, is marked both "critical" and "PC" but is also affecting linux and Mac, and seems to be just sitting there idle? Bug 162640 - "an error occurred while creating a message compose window. Please try again. T" But a better description is "cannot create new mail messages"
sorry for the spam. making bugzilla reflect reality as I'm not working on these bugs. filter on FOOBARCHEESE to remove these in bulk.
