I just rebuilt "fancy" and it works correctly. Do you feel that I
will/should rebuild the entire claws-mail application also Colin? I can
do that this evening if required. Right now it seems to be working

I notified the port maintainers for both "fancy" and "webkit" about the
problem so hopefully they will put a note in the ports documentation to
indicate that it is a required rebuild.

By the way, would claws-mail work with "webkit-gtk3-1.8.3"? It is in
the ports system but I don't have it installed. Would there be any
benefit to doing so?
