RH7.1/gcc 2.96-81, clobbered CVS build from 05/12/2001 01:32

I realize i'm using an unofficial compiler, but today i crash each time i reply
to a newsgroup. The posting is sendt - crash occures immediately afterwards.
Happens all the time.

R.K.Aa, I'd upgrade this to be smoketest blocker if someone else can verify it.
I'm seeing this not only with Newsgroup postings but on most email sends. I
can't verify its exact location but it's happening on both the official
nightlies and my own CVS compiled stuff. Been seeing it for about two days, and
have been looking for the bug to file it under because it looked like something
that someone else would already have reported.

Linux, kernel 2.4.4, X-4.0.3
thanks for logging the bug with the stack trace.

that stack trace resembles another one I saw recently, involving the timer for
the caret.

let me go find it..
I found #80209, but that wasn't the bug I was looking for.

There seems to be problems also when replying to a mail with a "Reply-To"
header. (Replying to one with only a "From" went OK.)

Now i got the first stack again on replying to a plain mail.
(nsView::GetPosition). I'm crashing around 80% of the time when replying to
anything in mailnews.

sspitzer: You were probably looking for bug 80355 (just found it referred to in
the newsgroup). It crashes in nsCaret::GetViewForRendering 
yes, #80355 was the one.  thanks.

Resolving as invalid. I use gcc2.96RH which I'm told is to be considered bugged.
