45 crashes on windows in the last 2 weeks
Crash stats don't seem to be happy going back much further than that.
Happens on SM (BuildID 20081130001326) as well as TB trunks
Flags: blocking-thunderbird3.0b1?
I seem to crash most frequently when I have a compose window open and a new email arrives but not sure that is the only circumstance.
Attached patch possible fixSplinter Review
I really don't know where we're crashing, nor can I reproduce this problem, but if m_newMsgHdr were null, we would crash. It's worth trying this on the trunk and seeing if it helps.

I'll plus for now - I'd
oops, premature commit - I'm not sure if we should plus this or not - it would be great if this patch fixed the problem, but I'd want evidence of that before taking the risk of the patch, and going through respins...

The other callers of the function I'm changing either check the resulting out pointer for null, or the rv and the out pointer, so they should all be OK with this change.
re: comment 5 I can't be sure this is a legit topcrash.  8 crashes on
11-26 for perhaps 2 people (hard to say) skews the stats - otherwise only avg 2 crashes per day.

If we get this on trunk and monitor both trunk and 3.0b1 for the next 2-3 days
I think we will get a clearer sense of whether this is needed for 3.0b1 ... we
already have 4 unique crashes for 3.0b1 :)
ok, possible fix checked in. We need to see if the crash still shows up in the crash stats in builds with this fix.

This wouldn't be a new crash, but the imap auto sync stuff would make us more likely to run into problems, just because we update folders much more than we did before.
Whiteboard: [possible fix landed on trunk]
Blocks: 467813
optimistically marking fixed - I've added this bug to the tracking bug of fixes we want for the beta 1 release branch.

Resolution: --- → FIXED
not marking v.fixed yet. but noting with the fix out ~2days optimistically it seems gone:
- last crash - TB build 20081201031225, SM 20081130001326
- prior to that, TB and SM each had ~2 crashes per day.

and no crashes so far for 3.0b1, which simply indicates to me not enough users to surface the crash.  We'll have to watch trunk and 3.0b1 a few more days before v.fixed
