commercial buildid:  2001-04-11-05 on linux. I did not crash following the steps
below.  I was replying to a plain text message in plain text from an html
composer. Reporter, do you still see this problem on recent builds?

can you get some symbols in there?

use "shar" in gdb to load the .so 


(gdb) shar *layout*.so

'shar' tells me all the symbols are already loaded...where to from here?
if you are running and optimized build, you can get symbols.  (you'd have to use 

but looking at the stack it resembes a bug that laurel just logged on me, that I 
claimed is a dup of a bug hyatt might have a dup of.

I'm pretty sure this was a dup also.  Sheela, if you can't reproduce this, can
you mark it WORKSFORME? Or r_kinder, could you say if you still see this bug?

Don't see this in 0.9.0 or the latest nightly build (Mozilla 0.9+
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-23.uid32 i686; en-US; rv:0.9+) Gecko/20010522)

It is, however, present in the default Gnome 1.4 installation.

buildid: 2001052208 linux RH 6.2, gnome-1.0.55.  I cannot reproduce the crash.  
However this seems to be only occurring on Gnome 1.4 version which I don't have 
on my linux machine. 
hi richard. what flavor and version of linux are you running?
On my system, which is RedHat 7.0 (2.2.16-22smp) using Ximian Gnome version, I don't experience a crash with build 2001052908.
