Where to start looking ??
   I have since discovered I can run Sylpheed as root.




I can't tell if you still have the issue or not, but if you do, open a term and type "sylpheed" or "claws-mail" if you are running claws. What does that exit message say?

if it only shows "segmentation fault", then issue strace sylpheed then look through the last part of strace to see what is killing slypheed.


strace output:
