been provided.

I have already done that in the supplied excerpt. But he wants the
full unedited debug log claiming that "nothing very private would be
revealed" (which is not true). I don't have dedicated throw-away email
accounts just for testing bugs.

Exactly. And neither they need that. The bug report already contains all
the data needed to reproduce the issue. I have demonstrated this by
starting from scratch which means anyone can start with an empty
~/.claws-mail and repeat the steps.
