crash if mail is forwarded or created and existing mail body is deleted using SHIFT+PGDWN, DEL keys


(Thunderbird :: Message Compose Window, defect)

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051201 Fedora/ Firefox/1.5
Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird version 1.5 (20051105) RC1

When creating a new mail or forwarding a mail sometimes I want to discard the text  of the existing mail body (e.g. signatures or text to be forwarded). I therefore use some key combinations to achieve this:

I do this by clicking into the mail body at the beginning of the text, then press SHIFT+PGDWN to select the whole text and then pressing DEL. Thunderbird then crashes every time reproducible. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Thunderbird
2. Click button 'write' to create a new mail
3. Enter some E-Mail Address and Subject (using TAB or Mouse-Click to select the fields)
4. Use TAB to go to the first row and first column of the message body or use the Mouse to go there
5. Use CTRL+PGDWN to select the whole body-content (in my case I have a signature)
6. Use DEL

Actual Results:  
Thunderbird crashes with a SEGV.

Expected Results:  
The body content should be deleted.

When using CTRL+A or the mouse to select the whole content instead of SHIFT+PGDWN in the described procedure, thunderbird does not crash.

I have tried to debug thunderbird using ddd:

   thunderbird --debug

but this was not successful. After the Mail window opens the application recieves Realtime-Signals (33) and after continuing within ddd thunderbird crashes after 10 or 20 such signals. Perhaps this is related to this BUG.

Furthermore I have made a core-dump: The Backtrace looks like this:

If you need the core-dump file I can attach it to this BUG.
Version: unspecified → 1.5
This should be fixed in newer builds.
