The icedove:about says it is

    version (20080208)

As far as I am concerned, whatever I get from

    aptitude install <prog_name>

is the latest, greatest, and only! Every time I have
tried to install something any other way I have wound
up in a big pile of doo-doo!

(If you have a safe, sure way of getting the *real*
latest and greatest I would love to hear about it!)

That I can do, finally. (It doesn't work to just change
Launcher Properties to "Run in terminal") Yes, there is
a message:

    -> dgwicks:~$ icedove
    -> DOUBLE-CLICK: 400 --> -1 THRESHOLD: 8 --> -1
/usr/lib/icedove/run-mozilla.sh: line 131:  2397
Segmentation fault      "$prog" ${1+"$@"}
    -> You have mail in /var/mail/wix
    -> dgwicks:~$
