Thunderbird crashes after a few seconds


Thunderbird has been working without a problem since I installed my gentoo system a month ago. Now it crashes after retrieving the messages from the mail server.
Code:
$ thunderbird
No running windows found

(thunderbird-bin:7456): Gdk-WARNING **: gdk_property_get(): length value has wrapped in calculation (did you pass G_MAXLONG?)
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::bad_alloc'
  what():  St9bad_alloc
/usr/libexec/mozilla-launcher: line 116:  7456 Aborted                 "$mozbin" "$@"
thunderbird-bin exited with non-zero status (134)
Any idea on how I could fix that ?

Mabye ...

i don't know what's the problem , the only thing i think you should do is to backup your e-mail data. it's usually located in /home/$username/.thunderbird ..... it's a hidden directory. try to reintall thunderbird if you can

I reinstalled (and upgraded) thunderbird. Tried to copy my datas under a new identity. The problem persists. Maybe it comes from the datas themselves, I'll check that later.

Try to re-compile the libraries that thunderbird depends on. Then re-compile thunderbird. Use very minimal CFLAGS to minimize any errors.

I use the binary version of thunderbird. No problems since I installed Gentoo several months ago.

You could have corrupted file in your account.

That's likely to be the problem. How can I check that and find the bad file ?

Rename your thunderbird directory that is in your home directory to soemthing like thunderbirdold. Then re-run thunderbird. Figuring out what file is corrupted will take eternity.

BTW, I am sorry that I kept leaving a few words out in my previous post.
