Attached patch patchSplinter Review
I think this is an old problem, which just for some reason hasn't happened
earlier. Modifying the listener array while clearing feels bad.
I don't have a testcase, but based on the code inspection this should work.
Crossing fingers :)

Requesting tracking esr17, as it would be nice to have this fixed in Thunderbird 17.0.1
Ludo, do you have any ideas how to reproduce this? Do you know anyone who is seeing the crash
often? Perhaps we could create TB17-try build for such user for testing.
No :(
Please nominate for uplift to Aurora/Beta/ESR17 with a risk evaluation if we'd like this fixed in the next TB17 version.
This is low risk. Ludo, do we need this on branches?

We need it on ESR as it's our major release until 24.

hmm, this is still occurring at a high rate for TB17.0.2.

is TB17.0.2 based on ESR?

yes. I would think we would have picked up the patch in 17.0.2 via status-firefox-esr17: --- → fixed
Specifically, 17.0.2 still comes from comm-release/mozilla-release, but as a pre-merge release branch off the 17.0 release cycle. TB 17.0.3+ should come entirely from comm-esr17/mozilla-esr17 (bug 815302).
Yes, this landed for GECKO1701_2013010313_RELBRANCH on Jan 03 13:59:12 2013,

indeed, #8 crash.
I haven't done the math, but I suspect the crash rate was not impacted at all by this patch.

most comments mention closing. 

"I got this message after I closed the Thunderbird. Firefox is giving me the same message, same circumstances. Might be my computer or the complement of programs running in the background." (user has PATROLPRO installed, but doesn't look to be the norm for other crashes)
