For example. But since you want to figure out which Debian packages the
libraries are included in, you would need to query you package database for the
package names. At Fedora one would simply run "debuginfo-install claws-mail",
and that would install all -debuginfo packages with the help of a package
dependency resolver.

Well, then it would be even more important to generated full/detailed
backtraces and also find out the steps how to reproduce the crash.

I am not a Claws Mail developer, just somebody who observed incoming problem
reports at Fedora, and IMAP access together with GMail is Claws Mail's
weak(est) spot for a very long time. It's not the only problem, however.
Sometimes users are impatient when waiting for an IMAP action (facing a server
connection timeout, for instance) and repeat the same mouse-clicks, which
"sometimes" also manages to crash Claws Mail because of a race condition
somewhere. Interrupting an active IMAP session (by going offline or stopping
the network in Network Manager) is one way to crash Claws Mail, not reliably,
but as a demonstration that something in that area is unstable.

That's why I've pointed at bug 3089 comment 2 and the other tickets linked
