Hi Ludovic,

it is hard to comment on your problem, as I don't have to source code of
Pantomime and GNUmail. From the stack dump I would say the problem might
be relate to accessing an already freed object. The release bug (a
RETAIN might be missing or an object is release /autoreleased to early)
might be either in the gui code or in your own code. So you should first
try to find out which object is causing this. Than check where this
object should be retained and why it is not. As a first step you could
switch on the double release check to see if this is your problem.

There are surely a lot of bug remaining in the gui library and a lot of
them will include wrong retain counts, but in most cases we don't
release objects not that we release them to often. Otherwise there would
be more error reports. So you should rather expect to find the bug in
your code.

As memory problems are rather common in this news group, I think that we
need a special readme on memory debugging.
