My Mozilla (1.0.0, 3.0r2) always reacts badly to these kinds of messages (with the subject full of ????s), freezing up, running the cpu to 100% for 30 secs or so, leaking memory, etc.

Anyone have any advice?

Download a Mozilla 1.6 binary from:


or (what I do) apt-get install libxft2 and libxft-dev from

deb http://ftp.acc.umu.se/mirror/mirrors.evilgeniuses.org.uk/debian/backports/woody/ gnome2.2/

and gcc-3.2 from:

deb http://www.fs.tum.de/~bunk/debian woody/bunk-1 main contrib non-free

and get the source of 1.6 from


and compile it yourself using gcc/c++-3.2 and the xft libs for antialiasing support. That is the latest Mozilla release which has none of the probs of 1.0.0. But... it is not a Debian package of course.
