CFLAGS="-g -O0" ./configure && make && make install

'-g' enables debugging symbols (mostly done automatically when calling
configure without previously set CFLAGS)

'-O0' disables all optimizations which could falsify backtraces.

I guess there was an update of any library Sylpheed is linked against
(maybe even indirectly) and this broke binary compability. This was the
same as I had when I upgraded libenchant. And you solved this by
compiling Sylpheed yourself as it now is linked against the version of
this library on your system. This is just a guess but if I'm right,
this is a serious Debian bug, I'd even say RC and since Lenny is going
to be released, you should report it.
