The whole Mozilla suite (mozilla-1.7.5, thunderbird-1.0, firefox-1.0)

they all crash upon startup.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. just start it (on a system with glibc-2.3.4 + NPTL)

I'm seeing this problem with Firefox 1.5 on Mandriva Linux 2006 using glibc-2.3.5.

A few seconds after starting, it crashes with this error:

*** glibc detected *** free(): invalid pointer: 0x08c3d1f8

I've just upgraded Thunderbird to 2.0.0.0 on Gentoo.
I use gcc 4.1.2, glibc 2.5-r1
When I receive any e-mail then Thunderbird crushes with this message on console:

*** glibc detected *** ./thunderbird-bin: free(): invalid next size (fast): 0x096c7ed0 ***

do you have an XIM (xscim?)

Comment 4

# xscim
-su: xscim: command not found

So I suppose I don't have XIM

I don't have any problems anymore since I'm using glibc-2.7 now.
