If I reply to an e-mail message that mozilla displays as having a forwarded or
"re:'d" message as an attachment, mozilla will crash without launching talkback
or displaying any debugging info in the terminal window.

For example, if I send a e-mail to someone, and they reply back to me, my
original message will show up in mozilla as an attachment - the original message
headers will look all pretty in the message window and there will be a paper
clip icon next to the sender's headers. If I reply to this message mozilla will

Same applies to a forwarded message.

If the message doesn't show up as an attachment (i.e. it has the ">" in front of
it,) mozilla will NOT crash.

This happens when I reply to messages in any folder, not just my inbox.

I haven't experienced any problems replying to messages that have other types of
attachments such as text, mp3's, or pictures.

I have a POP mail account setup -- I am unable to test this with an IMAP account.

System Info:
Pentium MMX 233
Red Hat Linux 6.2 (With all available updates installed)
Helix Gnome 1.2.4
Sawfish Window Manager 0.36

Could you give the date of the build that you were using? Also if possible could
you attach the message to the bug? This is so that we can see if it was some
particular charset etc that is creating this problem.

a look and tell me if there is any changes that you think need to be made.
