Do you have similar problems when using Mozilla Thunderbird?

tbird works when following the instructions at
or (simpler) use an External Editor plugin.

And have you checked to verify the DMI functions aren't there?

Nope. I expect(ed) you to do that, i.e., make sure that the patch
does that the description says that it does.

Here is the DMI patch again, written against linux-2.6.23-rc8,
with some of the #ifdef CONFIG_DMI's removed and moved
to include/linux/dmi.h. Putting them there in the way I've done
ensures that you don't have to put #ifdef CONFIG_DMI
around each dmi_check_machine() and that you don't
have to apply little patches to so many device drivers.

Damaged as the patch is, I was able to apply it by using
'patch -l' (ignore whitespace) + some fuzz. Not something that
Linus or Andrew would or should do.

I built and booted the kernel, it's running fine (x86_32 notebook).
