User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020623 Debian/1.0.0-0.woody.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020623 Debian/1.0.0-0.woody.1

When browsing the web in mozilla and clicking on an email hyperlink, ie: <a
href="mailto: me@me.com">me@me.com</a>

And at the same time there is no account set up in mozilla's mail, and mozilla's
mail is your default mail client.

You get the following error messages. First you get the option to set up a new
account or cancel. If you cancel, you get the next error dialog, "Are you sure
you want to exit the Account Wizard?".

If you click on 'Exit' on that dialog, mozilla mail shuts down, if you click on
the cancel instead in that dialog, it will repeat itself, and after 1 or so more
clicks on 'cancel' causes my X session to restart.

I'm running Debian, Sarge(Testing), with a custom 2.4.20 kernel. Nvidia graphics
with their latest drivers. XFree86, window maker is my desktop and wdm
is my session manager.

Mozilla Build:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020623

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Make sure you have no email account setup in mozilla
2.Make sure mozilla is your default email client
3.From mozilla browser, click on any email hyperlink
4.You'll get the option to create a new account, click on cancel
5.You'll get a dialog "Are you sure you want to exit the account setup wizard?",
click cancel, not exit.
6.Continue to click cancel on any of the dialogs from this point on, usually on
ly needed once
Actual Results:  
My X session crashed, it automatically restarted wdm.

Expected Results:  
closed the mail composer.

I'm going to mark critical, only because I did loose data in other apps when my
X server crased.
