I wouldn't say it's glib2. It's just the only code path visible in the
backtrace but that doesn't mean much.

Yeah, the backtrace is not very useful. I got a similar backtrace after
I manually upgraded libenchant on my system to its current development
version, it took me some time to find out that it was libenchant which
made Sylpheed crashing when composing a mail ;-).

@Mario: build sylpheed from source with debugging symbols enabled,
trigger the crash and then check the backtrace. And/or install the gtk2
and glib2 dbg packages of Debian.

Try to remember which packages you upgraded when it first happens and
if they could be related to Sylpheed in any way. I know this is a hard
task but it'd be helpful if you can't get a meaningful backtrace.
