I got home tonight and as usual after loggin in I tried to check my mail. To my dismay my email client crashed. I have been a long time user of claws-mail and have yet to have any real problems so this was of course a bit of an attention getter.
I tried updating from 3.7.8 to 3.7.9 which is the latest release with no luck. So I turned to the oracle seeking answers. I came across two pages with mention of startup-notification being related to the mess, one said to enable and another was just a bug report. Explicitly enabling it was of no help, where disabling cleared things right up. So, for now I have added “–disable-startup-notification” to my Pkgfile for claws-mail. A simple fix till the real problem is resolved I think.
