Default [6.2] Sylpheed crashing xenocara

Hello,
I am using 6.2-stable, xfce and sylpheed (mail manager).
In sylpheed, there are 2 particular buttons that trigger a strange behaviour. "Get" and "Get All" are used to retrieve mail from one mailbox and all mailboxes respc. When I push one of those, I get a black screen before going back to xenodm. Back on xfce, I find no .core. Pushing those again trigger the crash a 2nd time but the screen stays black and I can only fallback to ttys.
This may not be related to OpenBSD but I was wondering how one would debug this problem.

I use a x200t. Should I post dmesg, xenocara log ? (Which ones ?)
Thank you.

I gave up on sylpheed at either 6.0 or 6.1 - release.

For me "get" and "get all", just didn't do anything at all, but no crashes or (core dumps) in my case.

I didn't bother trying to debug, but switched to claws-mail.

I initially thought the issue was related to a W^X violation, but didn't get far researching that. If you have /usr/local mounted with the wxallowed option, that should rule that one out regardless (?).

I have been using Sylpheed for a few years without any crashes.
I am currently on version 3.6.0 with OpenBSD 6.2 stable (amd64) and openbox.
I guess /var/log/Xorg.0.log is the first place to look at to get an idea of what is going on.

Thank you both.
I gave up and installed claws-mail. I will take some time and enjoy the situation before experimenting with sylpheed.

I made the opposite move because when I clicked (often by mistake) on the reorder button I had to wait too long a time.
I found this claim, from the Sylpheed's website, to be true (~10k msg in my case):
"you can read messages in a folder which has 20-30 thousands without stress."
