The backtrace is useless as it comes from striped binaries.
Read http://www.claws-mail.org/faq/index.php/Debugging_Claws and try to provide a useful backtrace. A description of how this happened would be also appreciated.
After clicking on the button to get the new mail from the internet (removed from the server site). Mail is downloaded but unreadable because the program shutdown.
Reading symbols from /usr/bin/claws-mail...(no debugging symbols found)...done.
Starting program: /usr/bin/claws-mail
warning: Could not load shared library symbols for linux-vdso.so.1.
Do you need "set solib-search-path" or "set sysroot"?

running claws-mail in gdb
Under Archlinux, the version of claws-mail I used was 3.8.1 from pacman. The installation from archlinux AUR is wrong to (bad PKGBUILD ?? huh?). I used Installed 3.8.1cvs35 directly from claws-mail site instead: the bug disappeared.
