This only happens with one particular message, which is devoid of any
attachements & containsno HTML! 
I am going to attach the backtrace I get when trying to read it. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fire up MailNews
2. Click on this email in the list of messages.

Actual Results:  
Mozilla crashes.

Expected Results:  
It should display the message.
Do you use a XFT build ?
Yes, a GTK2 one to be specific. 
Keywords: crash
Blocks: xft_tracking
Can you run this with --sync and re-get the stack trace?
Blocks: gtk2
No longer blocks: xft_tracking
This one was produced using 1.3 final release.
Attached file Stacktrace with --sync
Alright, I ran it with --sync & produced yet another stack trace. 
Hope this one is more useful.
OK, this is very strange. This has suddenly & inexplicably stopped being a
problem! All I can think of that I changed was to add a 2nd Usenet account (&
subscribe to 2 groups) and change the Inbox folder properties to use UTF-8 by
default but to stop overriding the charset specified by the message. 
After that the message that have been crashing Moz no longer crash it & display
just fine. Suspecting that maybe the change to the charset preferences was what
did the trick, I set those back to the way they were, restarted Moz & read a few
of the problme messages but they still do not cause a problem. Since I cannot
see any reason why adding a new News account should have had any effect
whatsoever on this situation, I am not going to undo that because I really don't
want to reconfigure it. 
-->resolving so (since there is also no possibility to reproduce it anymore)...
