On 1.5 is hangs if the messages is selected. On 1.6a, Mail/News hangs on startup before "painting" any of the windows. I get a border and garbage in a hung window. It's one thing when 1.5 hangs. I can tell what message was the offender and not try to open it after restarting. I can't even run 1.6a if someone chooses to send me such mail.... Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Send yourself an email containing japanese characters 2. Open Mail/News 3. Watch it hang Actual Results: hung Mail/News Expected Results: No hang
Is this still an issue in recent builds?
I see the same problem in mozilla 1.7.5 (on RedHat 9 as well as on White Box Linux). I was under the impression it was Chinese characters rather than Japanese, but I may be wrong there. I find that it hangs up - when I receive mail that contains the characters - when I try to open a newsgroup that does - when I try to open an existing message in another mail folder that does. The least invasive solution I found is to "kill -9" the browser.
