Bug#517638: icedove: freeze/lockup of message pane when left for some hours

Package: icedove
Severity: normal

This was the first time I noticed this, but it seemed weird and worth 

After having icedove on for several hours, during which time I'd had 
some updates applied (although none which appear in the list of 
dependencies below) and prelink run both manually and via cron job, I 
found that the message pane of icedove had frozen. I could select 
different messages or message areas, but the message pane itself 
remained frozen, until I quit and restarted icedove.

This seems a bit related to the problem I have had for most if not all 
versions of icedove/thunderbird under GNU/Linux - sometimes the message 
pane will fail to display the selected message at all.

Any debugging clues or extra debugging help in a future build would be 
much appreciated.
