On my latest build of comm-central, after startup, I have about 5 seconds before I crash, with the following backtrace:

Summary: Startup crash → Startup crash - PR_Free in ProcessBodyAsAttachment

we're trying to stream an imap message, perhaps for gloda or the junk filter. So your crash is probably specific to a particular message in your inbox or other imap folder. You could start up offline, and try clicking on messages until you crash, since I suspect you would crash trying to display the message.

I tried this on the mac on a self-built trunk build. no crash. I also tried explicitly enabling jemalloc, in case it's not on by default on the mac, no luck. And this doesn't crash on windows.
