When I load mail, it loads the screen and then dies,
VC++ gives me this:
The instruction at "0x0012f73c" referenced memory at "0x000000000". The memory 
could not be "written".

If I run the VC++ debugger, a message window pops up and says:
Unhandled exception in mozilla.exe: 0xC00000005: Access Violation.

You have had this bug in the last few nightly builds.

I am running WIN2k Server w/ service pack 2.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open mail
2.Wait about 10ns
3.Watch program die

Actual Results:  Program crashes hard.

Expected Results:  I get my mail and news.

I just realized this was filed a month ago. I suspect both j.houwing and I have
a different crash than the original filer. I went back to an august 1 build
and mail works fine for me. (on linux).

I returned to august 17, and it works. But going to a august 21+ build crashes
my mail (3 mail, 4 news accounts).
