I'm using Claws on Ubuntu 16.04.x LTS less often, than on Arch,
however, the same versions, including my current installed version
3.16.0git213 doesn't freez or crash when using Ubuntu. What ever the
reason for the new issue(s) should be, it could be related to
dependencies. Ubuntu's LTS stays with the versions of the dependencies,
while Arch Linux follows upstream. On Ubuntu there was no enchant
issue, on Arch there was the enchant issue, something else could be
fishy too.
