Now I have nailed the problem with the dl-error-skeleton.c file!

It turns out that this happens if I step through the code using
Lazarus' debugging.
When I reach the line:


and try to step over it I get the message and exception.

But if I just let the program run without breakpoints in the function
that collects the email, then there are no exceptions. The code just
runs through!

So apparently there is some bad interaction by Lazarus with the GNU
debugger in play here....
