No. I have not. I really do not have the time to debug this. I just thought that it might be important information to the developers. The only detail I can add is that it seems to happen infrequently. But when it does happen, I am unable to get past it no matter how many times I restart TB, so I end up giving up on sending that particular email.
Well, I am still having the problem on rare occasions. Most of the times when it does happen, the message contains gif images.
