Get "--This message was sent by Messenger 5.0" multiple times in body 1999040808 build RedHat Linux 5.2 1) Tasks | Messenger 2) New message. Address the message and enter a subject. Send to yourself. Leave the compose window open. 3) New message. (Notice that the compose window opens already addressed to you with the previous subject) 4) Send to yourself. Notice in the terminal window that the content of the message just sent shows two "--This message was sent by Messenger 5.0" entries. Likewise when you receive the message, you'll see two ""--This message was sent by Messenger 5.0" entries. Each time you compose/send a message in this session, the number of times this entry shows up increases! Seth says this is because of the bug where the compose window doesn't close. However, to make mail messages look somewhat decent :-) until that bug is fixed, we shouldn't tack on so many "-- This message..." entries. The user has no way to overwrite this. (I can't try this on Windows right now - leaving soon. Seth says he'll fix this on Linux. Peter, if this happens on Windows, can you file a bug against Win32?)
Okay I think I know what's going on here. Lisa, I only saw the duplicate text show up in the first compose window (the one I left open). The new message was still addressed to me, but it only contained one line of the text. However when I sent the message I a body that had the multiple lines. Seth I don't know if this is something we can fix or not. The problem is that we have one editor app core per instance of messenger. When you bring up a compose window, we create an editor app core and bind it to the compose window. When we bring up a second compose window, we use the app cores manager to retrieve an editor app core. Since one has already been created, it returns the first editor app core. Apparently an editor app core is the "view". Adding kostello & sfraser to the cc list. Greg/Simon what should we do about this? Should we be creating a new editor app core every time we bring up a compose window? Or should we be going through the app cores manager like we are now to look up for any previously exisiting editor app cores and using it. (If this is indeed the solution, then it is a pretty trivial change to our xul files to instantiate a new editor app core every time we bring up a new message).
This sounds like the existing issus that the list of appcores is global. At some point, this list will become a per-top-level-window list, at which point your problem will disappear. To get around the problem now, you might be able to generate unique names for your editor appcores, and pass that unique name into the apprcore.Init() method. Or you could just not user the appcoresManager to manage the appcore, and keep it in a global JS variable.
fyi - little late but yes, this behavior does occur in the win32 Apriil 8 optimized build.

This problem still occurs in the April 27 Win32 and Linux builds (build id 1999042708). There was no build released for April 28. Need to wait for next build before can verify.
Can not verify until Linux bug 5736 is resolved.
Bug 5376 has been resolved and verified. Testing with the April 3 build on Win32, Linux, and PPC builds (1999050308), the original problem has been resolved. Verified as worksforme. Note: On Mac, it takes a long time for Messenger to complete loading. There is an existing bug 5855. Once I got Messenger loaded on the Mac, I was able to successfully receive new mail without having duplicate messages being downloaded.
