SeaMonkey 1.1.4 fails to complete sending its own "about:" page using "Send Page..." menu.  It tries indefinitely to attach the page to the outgoing message after pressing "Send" in the message window.  

Removing the attachment (it already shows before pressing "Send") using the right-click (context) menu allows the message to be sent without problems.
Assuming that the user did not modify the User Agent string identification, this has the desired effect of sending information relevant information about SeaMonkey by populating the X-User-Agent mail header, but this should work.

In contrast, Mozilla 1.1 on linux/ppc (used to report this bug - see User Agent field) does not actually attach anything, and the message (its body populated with an empty pair of pointy brackets) gets sent uneventfully (again, the X-User-Agent mail header contains the desired information, provided it has not been altered).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select "About Mozilla" from the Help menu
2. Select "Send Page" in the newly opened "about:" page.
3. Press "Send" on the newly opened message in SeaMonkey's/Mozilla App. Suite's mail interface and watch the forever busy Sending... dialog with "Attaching about:..." status message.  Additionally, on PC / Windows XP Pro SP2, SeaMonkey 1.1.4 attempts to dial-out (it seems to think that there is no LAN connection). 
4. Deleting attachment "About:" results in completed sending using LAN (after dismissing the dial-up dialog).

Actual Results:  
Always busy Sending... dialog with status message: "Attaching About:...".
Deleting attachment (already listed before attempted sending) allows message
sending to complete.

Expected Results:  
"Send Page..." should send an attached copy of the About Mozilla page like any other webpage.
I can also see this on trunk -> confirming.
