--- Comment #3 from flo.xfce at gmx-topmail.de ---
I am reopening this.
Gtk is NOT the problem, claws is. I tried again with debug build of glib,gtk2
and claws and now I am getting criticals, but no segfault, and I can use the
account preferences. I guess my inital assumption that is has something to do
with the way I configured gtk is wrong, instead the stock gtk package checks
some assertions instead of segaulting directly.
Again - this is a claws bug: You are dereferencing null pointers. You are lucky
that gtk will, in most cases, throw a critical but keep running. But you cannot
assume that this will always be the case.
I found two occurences in the claws code where null pointers are derefed, I
will attach a patch soon.

You are receiving this mail because:
You are the assignee for the bug.
