EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM:
(Explain in detail what you do (e.g. tap on OK) and what you see (e.g. message
Connection Failed appears))
~ $ modest
modest: use 'modest -s' to start from cmdline with UI
process 16337: arguments to dbus_bus_request_name() were incorrect, assertion
"_dbus_check_is_valid_bus_name (name)" failed in file dbus-bus.c line 1070.
This is normally a bug in some application using the D-Bus library.
Modest crashs very often. How I can investigate to get more information about
This is normal behavior. The .launch files are for maemo-invoker:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 Feb 2 17:41 /usr/bin/modest ->
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 690628 Feb 2 01:27 /usr/bin/modest.launch
If you want to launch modest from the command line, just type 'modest'. That
will load the background process.
If you want the GUI from the command line, you should type: modest -s
Modest have never ever crashed on me. It's weird that people are reporting

Hm. Have you some program (possible something else than Modest) that is
compiled with Thumb and running at the same time?
(Anything using thumb can cause random crashes in random processes.)
Does this still occur on the latest CSSU update? Otherwise, this should be
closed as RESOLVED WORKSFORME, because I'm unable to reproduce this on two
I have exactly the same bug launching modest from desktop or command line.
it crash randomly with the 'illegal instruction' error a few second after being
if i try to launch it again it crashes again a few time until it stop and
I have the last CSSU update.
How can i know if i have something compile with thumb?
