I can confirm that there is a problem with a double-free when handling  
OpenPGP (RFC2440) messages. I could reproduce it when running balsa with  
nice -10 and compiling gcc 3.3.2 in parallel...

[albrecht@antares balsa-rfc3156]$ MALLOC_CHECK_=1 nice -10 src/balsa
free(): invalid pointer 0x10c22e58!

I'll try to track that down asap. Sorry for the chaos!!!

Cheers, Albrecht.
