I mean cvs-based, built locally by me using slightly tweaked spec
files based on the Fedora released version.

I should have added, "...if not restarted" to the "Claws often crashes"
sentence above. Could it be some sort of paging problem where Claws
code is discarded by the kernel memory manager because it thinks it can
re-read it from disk from the binary or .so files but it reads in the
new version where the code entry points are in the wrong place?
