I pulled the latest source this morning, and did a dep build. Now closing
message compose windows crashes (on Linux). To reproduce, I do

1. Start mozilla.

2. Open a compose window (CTRL-m)

3. Close compose window (CTRL-w, if focus works)

4. It crashes, with

ComposeUnload from XUL
Gdk-ERROR **: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  serial 7800 error_code 3 request_code 15 minor_code 0

I'm doing a clobber rebuild right now, and will post more to this bug if I find
anything interesting.

When I follow the steps - I see a JS exception in the console but there is no
crash. The exception is JS Error"setting a property that has only a getter". If
I dont enter anything in the window I get this when at the
msgCompose.CloseWindow() line else if I have entered something and I get the
save as dialog and I say yes I get the error at the msgCompose.bodyModified
line. In either case it is with the msgCompose object.
Still looking into it.

I just did a clobber build, after pulling the latest source. This bug still
happens, as outlined earlier. Error I get is still:

ComposeUnload from XUL
Gdk-ERROR **: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  serial 8514 error_code 3 request_code 4 minor_code 0
Gdk-ERROR **: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  serial 8515 error_code 3 request_code 4 minor_code 0

Maybe it's something with my GTK installation? I'm running Mandrake 7.2 on this
machine. I can't say for sure, but I don't recall seeing this before.

I don't see this either.  (I'm on RH 6.0)

leif, can you get a stack trace?

do you have any changes in your tree for LDAP autocomplete or any LDAP
autocomplete prefs enabled that perhaps varada and I don't have?

I have some more data on this. I was wrong, the machine that this crashes on is
a Mandrake 8.0 system. I just tested the same thing on a Mandrake 7.2, and it
works fine there.

On the 7.2 system I have these libraries installed:


while on the 8.0 system I have


I believe the latter means it's v1.2.10 of GTK.

Unfortunately neither of these two systems are happy with GDB (even the latest
CVS gdb), maybe because they are both SMP machines (dual CPUs). I'm gonna try to
install Mandrake 8.0 on a crappy laptop I got, which is single CPU, and hope to
debug there.

No word from reporter for nearly 7 months.
