To catch up I was 't'-ing through the messages (which are threaded) and thunderbirds randomly crashes I started thunderbird from a xterm window I got the following error messages Grendel$ /d1/thunderbird/thunderbird/thunderbird GConf Error: Bad key or directory name: "/desktop/gnome/url-handlers/s++/command": `+' is an invalid character in key/directory names Note: my desktop is KDE Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Read lkml as a new group 2.starting 't'-ing through the messages 3. Actual Results: thunderbird crashes with the following error message: GConf Error: Bad key or directory name: "/desktop/gnome/url-handlers/s++/command": `+' is an invalid character in key/directory names I'm using KDE as my desktop and Fedora Core as my OS..
