alpine crashes or becomes non-responsive when saving some messages with deleted attachments

Asked by Amit Apte on 2021-01-28

After upgrading the package 'alpine' from 2.22+dfsg1-1 (from focal 20.04LTS) to 2.24+dfsg1-1 (groovy 20.10), alpine crashed at least a few times while saving certain messages in gmail (being accessed through IMAP). The only common step I could see that that I was saving those messages after deleting the attachments.

When I removed that package and installed the older version of alpine (2.21+dfsg1-1build1), alpine was able to correctly save the same message after deleting attachments.

I am not an expert and so don't know what information is relevant to be posted. Below is some basic information.
