(Note: Guessing MailNews/IMAP as problem component, see below why)

I'm seeing this crash on exiting Mozilla fairly regularly now. Seems to only
happen when MailNews is used in the session or at least I haven't seen this yet
after just browsing. Everything goes normally but when closing Mozilla with
File->Exit I get a crash.

Talkback window pops up but cannot send the data. Trying to view the crash
details in talkback just shows up a blank detail page. Stack trace from drWatson
looks like this:

Stack trace looks similar every time this crash happens.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start mozilla and do some browsing and IMAP mail access
2. Close MailNews window
3. Close Mozilla with File->Exit

Actual Results:  
Sometimes result is Mozilla crashing with drWatson and Talkback popping up.

Expected Results:  
Application closing.

I will attach the full drWatson log file if needed but I guess the stack is the
most important part of it.

Dont know if this is the same bug, but i crash without talkback when clicking on
the "mail & newsgroups" icon in the component bar.

Turned junk mail controls off to see if this is related. Crash still happens but
the stack looks slightly different, no more UTF7 functions:

There have been some recent IMAP fixes checked in. Reporter, do you still see
this in the latest nightly builds? Alternatively, are you still seeing it in
1.3? (It will be released in a few days)
Keywords: crash

Comment 4

15 years ago
Still on same build (2003021608) because I'd rather not go to 1.4 alphas just
yet and the 1.3 builds on ftp site seem to be hosed (bug 195060). The crash only
happens when exiting Mozilla so I can live with it for now.

I have deleted all folder .msf files, history.dat and xul.mfl to see if this
would be data corruption in those but no help. Crash still happens almost every
time I exit Mozilla.

I'll try with a recent 1.3 nightly when the builds are stable again.

looking through bugzilla and talkback. One crash report w/NS_NewXMLDocument

talkback id 17308843. Not quite sure it's the same crash. Similar.

First couple of lines of stack trace:
[d:\builds\seamonkey\mozilla\content\xml\document\src\nsXMLDocument.cpp, line
[d:\builds\seamonkey\mozilla\content\build\nsContentModule.cpp, line 322]         
[d:\builds\seamonkey\mozilla\xpcom\glue\nsGenericFactory.cpp, line 78]         
[d:\builds\seamonkey\mozilla\xpcom\components\nsComponentManager.cpp, line 1731]
line 103]         
[d:\builds\seamonkey\mozilla\content\xbl\src\nsXBLService.cpp, line 1293]         
[d:\builds\seamonkey\mozilla\content\xbl\src\nsXBLService.cpp, line 1143]  

This ocurred on 2/18.

Checked nsXMLDocument.cpp and 2 changes made
on feb 24 and feb 27 but looking at the comments I don't think
they caused crash.

I see this crash also on a different machine with WinXP SP1 so it's unlikely
that it's caused by something in my Win2000 SP3 box. However, drWatson on XP
could not do a proper stack trace so maybe the problem is stack corruption.

It could be something in my Mozilla user profile which I copy between these two
machines but I've already deleted and recreated most of the profile files that I
think might be corrupt (xul.mfl, history.dat, registry.dat, pluginreg.dat,
folder.msf files) so I think profile corruption is unlikely to cause this.

I'll wait until 1.3 is released and will use the released version to create a
profile from scratch to rule out profile corruption.

Looks like talkback is actually sending something with build 2003030205. Some
talkback IDs of this crash are TB17723777K, TB17748405H and TB17759255X.

Comment 10

Stackwanted to determine if those Talkback IDs are for this bug.

Comment 11

Recreated user profile from scratch with 1.3 nightly build 20030308.

Just crashed on exiting again but this time stack looks corrupted (drwatson
trace looks meaningless).

Comment 12

15 years ago
Still hapens with 1.4a nightly build 2003032708. Talkback ID TB18552007Z is from
the crash that generated this drWatson stack trace. Note that this trace does
not have any of the <nosymbols> lines like all previous ones. Maybe this is the
first one that shows where the problem really might be:

I'm back on 1.3 due to other instability in 1.4a. Tested if profile switching
triggers the crash to find out if this has something to do with the user profile.

- Created a new user profile.
- Ran Mozilla with my regular profile for about 1/2 day browsing and using IMAP
mail. No problems.
- Did a Tools->Switch profile and changed to the test profile. Worked fine, no
crash and the browser loaded the homepage of the test profile.
- Did a File->Exit and the result was a crash. Stack looks somewhat corrupted
again. Talkback ID TB18640405Z.

Changed summary.

Bug 200541 is likely a duplicate of this one, at least it looks very simlar to me.
Bug 201230 seems similar as well.

Created attachment 122107 [details]
Yet another drWatson stack trace

Attached a recent stack trace of build 2003042708 crashing.

The common thing I see in the various drWatson traces is the lines

The rest of the stack trace seems to vary a lot even though I always tend to
close the browser in the same way.

Comment 16

15 years ago
Changed from Win2000 to XP. Now most of the drwatson stack traces are really
meaningless, usually there is only the raw stack dump or only one or two
functions in the trace.

Bug 200541 is almost certainly the same thing, I've seen a couple of traces like
in that bug as well.

This crash happens most of the time when I close Mozilla. I'm not sure but I
have a feeling that moving lots of messages between IMAP folders is the thing
that triggers this.

I have sent more. Most recent ones are TB23228584G and TB23159496G. I have
written "bug 193998" in the comments field of most talkbacks I have sent so
maybe you can search with that.

I have sent TB23288607X and TB2328934M today. For those I also have drWatson
traces if they also happen to be empty. However, it does not look very good as
in the drWatson stack trace the first crash looks like complete stack corruption
and the second one only has this:

What theme are you using? Does this happen with a new profile?

Cc'ing Brendan since he knows what things might be null and what things won't be
null in a PLDHash destroy callback like the back of his hand :-) From the
talkback stack, it looks like aPool might be null, which doesn't seem likely.

400     static void PR_CALLBACK FreeBindingEntry(void* aPool, PLHashEntry*
aHashEntry, PRUintn aFlag) {
401         if (aFlag == HT_FREE_ENTRY) {
402             nsIRDFResource* key = NS_STATIC_CAST(nsIRDFResource*,
NS_CONST_CAST(void*, aHashEntry->key));
403             NS_RELEASE(key);
404             nsFixedSizeAllocator* pool =
NS_STATIC_CAST(nsFixedSizeAllocator*, aPool);
405             BindingEntry::Destroy(*pool, NS_REINTERPRET_CAST(BindingEntry*,
406         } }

Using the Modern theme. I have re-created the profile from scratch in the past
and this error persists. I only see the crash after using MailNews for a while,
i.e. if I just start it up and view a few messages Mozilla does not ususally
crash but after a couple of hours running the crash happens most of the time.
Always crashes  when Mozilla is exiting (Closing the last window or selecting
File->Exit), I don't usually see crashes during normal use.
bienvenu: this is plhash.c, not pldhash.c.  Looks like heap corruption.  Someone
find a reproducible test case, use purify or valgrind.

d'oh! I guess I need to go look at plhash.c - it could be heap corruption, but
the 0x00000000 value is suspicous.
Something jumped thru null, or the stack-saved return pc was null'ed.  Cc'ing
dbaron in case he has an idea.

I didn't get the last one because the talkback server stopped responding while
I was looking them up.

the crashes in nsRDFResource::~nsRDFResource() look like crashes freeing mURI,
which would imply either some sort of mem corruption or a double free. I've
never seen this crash myself. 

Jari, do you start up with just the browser, and then launch mailnews? Is
QuickLaunch enabled? In the distant past, problems like this have been related
to shut-down order but I don't see how that could be in this case. Oh, 

Comment 30

I usually start with the browser and then start mailnews with ctrl-2. When
closing I usually close MailNews and then the browser. But not always like this
and at least the closing order does not seem to make a differece. Quicklaunch is
not enabled (In fact I think this crash might not occur with QL since I can
change profile without crashing, it only crashes when Mozilla exits for good).

Just in case it makes any difference, TB23349619Z is a crash where the browser
window was closed first and MailNews last.

I suppose it's possible that the fix for Bug 155192 will fix this - anyone who
sees this regularly, if you try a 1.6 build from 09/11 or later, let us know if
you still see this crash. thx.

Comment 37

I don't have to run for a really long time to get the crash. I still haven't
foind any truly reproducible way to get the crash but it seems more likely the
more mesasges you deal with in MailNews. If I download a few hundred messages
from IMAP and filter them into different folders, this usually does it. But not

I will give a recent 1.6a a go to see if I still see this crash.

Comment 38

1.6a build 2003091510 crashes as well. TB23633527Z.

This crash happened as follows:
- Start Mozilla
- Start MailNews and open IMAP account.
- Go into folder where there are about 700 unread messages.
- Use find (shift-ctrl-F) to filter some messages into another imap folder and
delete some others.
- Compact the folder, go into another folder, do shift-ctrl-C on that folder and
compact it as well.
- Close MailNews
- Close browser. This resulted the crash.

Comment 39

thx, I see the crash with those steps. I think this is an rdf or a xul template
builder problem, actually, but I'll see what I can figure out.

Comment 40

this looks to be a ref-counting problem with the folder resource. When we
destroy the mClusters hash table, the folder resource is freed. But, the
mBindingDependencies hash table also has a reference to the folder resource, and
at this point, it's dangling. The XULTemplateBuilder code looks OK in terms of
its ref-counting, so my guess is that the problem is caused by a ref-counting
problem in one of the operations (either the msg delete or the msg move). I'll
try to narrow it down. It could also be a problem in the search view.

found problem in search view - it was using getter_AddRefs to assign a raw ptr
to a comptr, producing a ref underflow. This patch fixes the problem. This was
a long standing problem, and I believe an occasional top-crasher.

fix checked into the trunk. I agree that this should be fixed in 1.6final, since
it's such a trivial fix for such a long-standing crasher. But I don't think it
