    It has been doing this for 5 minutes. I've tried relaunching it, and it immediately does this. At first I thought it had to do with a large email but I deleted it and deleted it from the trash as well. It just continues to do this. I would just try to wait it out, but as you can see my CPU temp is @ 100C :eek3:

    Anyone see crazy shit like this before?

    Weird, I think my lockup lately has been caused by Mail. How do you rebuild the Mailbox?
