That isn't an overly useful backtrace, could you please load shared library
symbols into GDB before getting the trace?  Also we need to know how to
reproduce the problem.  Does it randomly occur when posting a comment on freshmeat?

Sorry, I knew that it doesn't look useful. But that's the best I have. It's
RedHat 7.1 with gdb 5.0rh-5. It says that it loads the libraries, lots of them.
Setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH doesn't change anything.
I tried to attach gdb to the running Mozilla, but gdb gets an internal error.
The crash happens when I press "submit". Simple comments don't cause crash, but
it happens after long "realistic" editing activity in the textarea (notably
cut-and-paste).
I couldn't reduce it to a simple repeatable case, but I'll keep all three
coredumps, so I'll be glad to post better backtraces if somebody directs me to a
FAQ describing how to produce them.
Note that it's the "gcc295" build.

I've found the info at 
  http://www.mozilla.org/unix/debugging-faq.html
to be helpful for this.  

Is it possible to get the symbol info without pulling a tree and building it?

I don't know what magic went into gdb 5.0-rh5, but generally you need a gdb 5
cvs build to get threading support that isn't completely baffled by moz.

Well, gdb from the CVS (5.1 branch) behaves much better, but it still shows the
same backtrace. nm 
shows that libgkcontent.so is stripped, so it's not surprizing. I'll compile
Mozilla from source if I have time.
In the meantime, here's how to reproduce the bug:

go to Freshmeat.net (other sites untested)
login
go to the any project record
click "add comment"
enter something in the textarea only
click "submit"
until mozilla crashes
  you get an error (subject missing)
  press "Back" (browser button, not link)
  select some text (try both mouse and keyboard)
  cut text
  paste text
  click submit
It takes a few minutes (10-20 attempts or so) to crash mozilla

How do I: "go to a project record"?

The bug seems to be fixed in the last few days.  I have found that the crash
always happens if "Del" is pressed when the caret is at the end of the input
control.  On some sites it looks like that Del erases text past the end of the
control.  Submitting the form after that causes crash.
Neither the todays (29-Aug-2001 11:05) mozilla-gcc295-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.gz
nor the version I build from the sources show this kind of behavior.

Just for record, an easier way to reproduce this (fixed) crash:
Go to www.ebay.com
Enter "qqqq" left of the "Find it" button
Press Home
Press Del until the cursor jumps to the "Find it" button
Press "Find it" - Mozilla crashes with a similar backtrace.
Unless this fix was "unintended" it should be safe to close this bug.

right, the ability to delete past the end of the control was bug 96604 (recently
fixed).  since that bug was reported to cause crashes, I'm marking this a duplicate.

on a possibly related note, the fix for bug 83607 (too much backspace in
textareas can cause a segfault) was checked in this afternoon.
