SEGFAULT in aerc/widgets.(*MessageList).Draw


I encountered this crash with aerc 0.3.0.r183.g61e9940. I don’t know how to reproduce it, I’ll add more information if I get this bug again.

I've been bitten by it too. I was changing accounts when it happened. It does not always happens though.

(Hopefully I'm doing this correctly, this is my first time doing git related things via email)

I just got this issue too, on 0.4.0. After taking a quick gander at the source code, it seems to be because msg.Envelope is nil on the indicated line (on the current master HEAD (fe1cabb), that's line 108).

I feel this happens when (one of) the messages has not finished loading, but I'm having a hard time reproducing the issue. Perhaps expanding the nil check on line 98 will be enough?

I’ve ran into this issue once again; the trace I’m getting has changed and matches the previous message. I think it happened when one message hasn’t loaded or is being send, and I quit aerc (but I’m not sure).

Indeed, that seems to be the case.

I hit this too and submitted the relevant patch: https://lists.sr.ht/~sircmpwn/aerc/patches/14540

I got it when quickly switching between two loading folders.

This happened to me as well, although I was not interacting at all with aerc. It suddenly just crashed. It seems to have happened just when I received a new email (in fact the verification email for signing up to sourcehut :P ).
