Build is 2001 02 07.  When I open a mail account I'm getting truckloads of
assertions that look like this:

###!!! ASSERTION: couldn't get names: 'names', file
../../../../../mozilla/mailnews/base/search/src/nsMsgSearchTerm.cpp, line 929
###!!! Break: at file
../../../../../mozilla/mailnews/base/search/src/nsMsgSearchTerm.cpp, line 929
###!!! ASSERTION: couldn't get addresses: 'addresses', file
../../../../../mozilla/mailnews/base/search/src/nsMsgSearchTerm.cpp, line 930
###!!! Break: at file
../../../../../mozilla/mailnews/base/search/src/nsMsgSearchTerm.cpp, line 930

I'm marking this critical for 0.8 since it might indicate another problem.  If
it turns out not to be then feel free to remove it.

Scott,  can you reassign to some one in this area?  I don't get the assertion on 
today's winNT debug build.  This is coming from search and the "names" is 
returned by ParseHeaderAddresses which is in mime.

reassigning to gayatrib and cc'ing bienvenu. Is this assertion the result of
anything that needs to be fixed right away?

If this is related to Chris's problem with mail filters not firing (which I bet
it is), then I'd guess it is critical. I'm not seeing these assertions myself.

This looks like a bug in the rfc822 message header parser.
nsMsgHeaderParser::ParseHeaderAddresses - I wonder if some i18n code changed
(though I don't know why I'm not seeing this). Chris, can you run in the
debugger and see what the string and charset passed in to ParseHeaderAddresses is?

Can we do this with debugging printf()'s?  I don't have a working build and
debugger right now.

we certainly could. I'll attach a patch.

Chris, can you apply this patch and let me know if anything is printed out? You
don't need me to check this in, do you?

Doesn't seem to hurt anything that I can see.  OK for 0.8.

are you seeing any printf's? Are you still seeing the assertions? I don't see
any reason to check this in for .8 since it's just for diagnosis, and I haven't
heard anyone else having this problem.

mail assertions from winNT custom 20000211 ~9am on 0.8 branch

I should point out that the assertions I attached are when I open mail/news from
the browser. Perhaps this is a different problem?

Mack, those are definitely different assertions, and have to do with your
account setup. It's messed up somehow, though beyond that I couldn't say.

This is over a year old. Are the assertions still there?
mass re-assign.

This seems more like a general account manager or main mail window & not an
address book problem. Changing the component.
