--- Comment #7 from dev at diy-biogas.eu ---
Ok, we have an interesting concidence here. So far I do not understand, why a
gtk library causes a SEGFAULT when I send mails over an encrypted connection.

are there any plans to fix this like catching the failing state?

citing from the linked ticket:

That happens more than you'd think ;)
But in this case, the particular error message and the resulting abort is due
to the application (or a library it's using) calling
cairo_surface_set_device_offset() when the cairo context is already in an error
So unless it's a memory corruption or something similar in cairo, checking for
the error state (or not causing it in the first place) is definitely something
the application developers should look into.
