I connect to my uni's VPN server via vpnc, and sometimes the connection drops.

I was trying to send a mail to staff, and noticed that the connection was bad.

I issued vpnc-disconnect, and seamonkey crashed.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect to some VPN server via vpnc.
2. Let the connection go bad (no throughput).
3. Try to send an email.
4. While seamonkey is trying to send (and can't, due to bad connection), sever the VPN connection with vpnc-disconnect.
5. Watch seamonkey die...
Actual Results:  
Total crash

Expected Results:  
Prompt informing that sending failed, with ability to resend, when connection is up again...

Can you test if this also happens with a trunk build from ?

As a matter of fact, I ran into the same situation (network-wise) again, however this time seamonkey didn't crash, leading me to believe that either the crash was unrelated, or else, it is at least non-reproducible.

I will note, however, that the latest official seamonkey (1.1.4) does seem to crash a lot at my home machine. Again, this is nonreproducible, as for a number of days, the browser would have crashed when I returned from uni or got up in the morning, but for the past few days, it has stayed up. I have no idea how to diagnose it, so I leave it as an anecdotal remark rather than filing a bug.

Best regards,
