Description Hugh Hyatt 2014-05-12 17:53:13 CEST
Unable to do anything after this message appears.  I ran 'claws-mail --debug' and got 19,163 output lines, the last 14 of which are:

19150 bogofilter.c:233:Filtering message 186 (0/13)
19151 bogofilter.c:268:read /home/hugh/.claws-mail/tempfolder/processing/186 H 0
19153 bogofilter.c:346:message 186 is ham
19154 bogofilter.c:233:Filtering message 187 (1/13)
19155 bogofilter.c:268:read /home/hugh/.claws-mail/tempfolder/processing/187 H 0
19157 bogofilter.c:346:message 187 is ham
19158 bogofilter.c:233:Filtering message 188 (2/13)
19158 bogofilter.c:268:read /home/hugh/.claws-mail/tempfolder/processing/188 H 0
19161 bogofilter.c:346:message 188 is ham
19162 bogofilter.c:233:Filtering message 189 (3/13)
19163 *** Error in `bogofilter': free(): invalid next size (normal): 0x000000000221ab90 ***

At this point, the only action I seem to be able to take is to kill claws-mail.  I suspect the rest of the debug output won't be helpful, but it's available if needed.

By starting up offline and unloading bogofilter, I am able to continue, so I downgraded the severity (importance).
Comment 2 Colin Leroy 2014-05-24 18:23:52 CEST
could you get a backtrace in gdb or valgrind ?

Comment 3 Paul 2014-07-10 08:05:55 CEST
no response, closing now
Comment 4 Hugh Hyatt 2014-07-10 13:03:23 CEST
Not sure how I missed the request for a backtrace.  In any case, I'm happy to have it closed as the problem never reoccurred and was probably irreproducible.
