The crash happen ocassionally and it gets more and more annoying. Probably need to switch back to mozilla, which never crashed in the last 6 month ... 

Reproducible: Always

Too bad we cannot get a real stacktrace. But i think the PL_DHashTableOperate crashers are already known and will be fixed...

1) Hmmm, what do you mean with "real" stack trace? Wanna have the core files?
2) Any estimations, when it will be fixed?

With a real stacktrace i mean a stacktrace from a build with symbols (the builds are shipped without symbols). Your stacktrace contains many calls to NSGetModule, which is a exported function so that's probably the reason why it occours so many times in your stacktrace.

what mcsmurf said, either build your own build w/ --enable-debug/--enable-debugger-info-modules or use talkback.

don't try to use gdb or an equivalent on a build w/ --enable-strip or a talkback enabled build, the output is useless.
Jens, are you still seeing this on recent builds of SeaMonkey? Are you able to build your own and test? If you can't build your own, can you try a trunk build from and, if you get that crash again, be sure to "send crash data and restart" from the "Breakpad" popup which will appear, then type about:crashes in the URL bar, hit Enter, and copy the crash ID to a comment below?

Timeless, IIUC SeaMonkey builds 1.x.x are shipped without Talkback.

The latest comment is more than 1½ years old. If the reporter doesn't answer within a "reasonable" time frame, I move it be closed INCOMPLETE

indeed, there is no crash reporting available for those builds. reporter if you're still interested, you will need to make your own build.
