do you have any extensions installed? Perhaps this is an OS/2-specific problem.

No Extensions. It crashes only on OS/2.
Tested on Warp 4.5 FP 4&5 and Warp Connect FP40.
Linux and win32 versions are not affected.

Weird. I'll debug tonight.

I see it crashing in
nsWindow::DispatchMouseEvent(unsigned, void*, void*)
(crash address in current trunk builds is WDGTOS2.DLL 0001:0000bd82).

[icsdebug for some reason puts me at the line
and insists that mMouseListener is NULL despite the test against that. ]

But a few printfs in DispatchMouseEvent tell me that an aEventType of
501==NS_CONTEXTMENU_KEY is that cause (which I would not have expected to end up
in a method called DispatchMouseEvent). In line 3416 
   result = DispatchWindowEvent(&event);
fails and despite this event.widget is NS_RELEASEd in line 3493. A patch like

 #endif //OS2TODO
-    NS_RELEASE(event.widget);
+    if (event.widget)
+       NS_RELEASE(event.widget);
     return result;

or a test of result gets rid of the crash.

heh, fwiw NS_IF_RELEASE(event.widget); would be the style to use

Very funny

OK, this then gets rid of the immediate crash.

But, 1) I see several other instances in nsWindow.cpp where neither return nor
event.widget get checked before releasing event.widget -- most or all of them
in common with the windows version, like the one at the very end of
nsWindow::DispatchMouseEvent. And 2) this does not make the popup very useful
because triggered by Shift-F10 it gets placed somewhere near the border of the
screen and not over the window.
