sending mail spins if we can't get access to a file attachment
If we get a file system error opening a file when trying to attach it during the send process, we just spin forever w/o aborting the progress dialog. This is because we blow off the error attaching the file. Fix upcoming.
Comment on attachment 141551 [details] [diff] [review] proposed fix don't blow off error, and put up a meaningful error message.

fixed on trunk. Here's how I created the problem. On one machine, using winzip, I added a file in my shared documents folder to a zip archive called palmsync.xpi, using the file explorer context menu "add file to zip archive" On a second machine, I tried to attach the palmsync.xpi file, and then send the message. It spun forever, because the .xpi file was locked. Note that winzip was not open at the time. I don't know if the two machine setup is needed to recreate this, but in general, we should handle failures to read attachments.
fixed on m4 branch
fixed on trunk.
