I now see two issues:

1. Balsa's process hangs around indefinitely after quit.

I was wrong in my previous mail: balsa can really hang on this even with current glibc. The reason I did not see it at first was that I had MALLOC_CHECK_ environment variable defined. Balsa runs just fine if this variable is set - but hangs when I unset it. I ran balsa with brand fresh configuration without IMAP and it still hangs.

I am tempted to say it is a problem with glibc but it could be some _very_ special balsa problem. It is difficult to know without doing some serious debugging. What about other gtk/gnome programs? Do they run?

I see that if I disable mailbox scanning, balsa quits just fine - but of course only special mailboxes are visible:

      * children will be appended to the top level. */

     if (cmd_open_unread_mailbox || balsa_app.open_unread_mailbox)

As soon as I manually rescan the mailboxes, balsa will hang on quit.
