Hi Michael,

Thanks for the follow-up on this bug, it's getting a little old having 
to use a squeeze vm to check my email.

I installed claws-dbg and gdb which also brought in gdb-server, and then 
did as instructed in a MATE terminal (and in LXTerminal, where I got the 
same output).

Here's what I got, since it's not much I'll send it all, and I did run 
it as my desktop user (i.e. cia, not as root):
After running claws mail and having it crash while it was retrieving 
emails for my 2nd email account (I think it goes to the inbox for the 
1st email account), the terminal showed:
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

It appears it didn't do what it was supposed to do? Please advise.  Thanks.
