As a matter of fact, I have libesmtp correctly installed in /usr/lib. 
This happens as I always use --prefix=/usr for apps/libs I'm building 
from source (as I do all the time).

[balsa]$ libesmtp-config --version
[balsa]$ ls -al /usr/lib | grep esmtp
drwxr-xr-x    2 root     root         4096 Jan  1 20:28 esmtp-plugins

It's all there as you can see. And this is the same libesmtp I was 
running before with no problems whatsoever. I did actually 
--enable-require-all-recipients (otherwise it wouldn't even build) and 
I ran `ldconfig'.

I retrieve email from three different POP servers. As I said it crashes 
when there IS mail to be retrieved and it crashes just before the 
'checking mail' mini-window should have gone away, ie. instead of 
getting closed, it crashes. So it is after I get the last email from 
the last POP server.

It is indeed strange. I find it even more strange as it DID NOT happen 
prior to me reinstalling my system from scratch.If it helps I'm running 
Debian 2.2 stable, but half of it is not debian anymore as I've built 
most things from source afterwards. I'd also hint it is library mess. 
I'm going to look into it and I'll provide you with further information 
on this one if needed and as soon as possible.

Thank you both for your replies.
