I am running netscape-4.5 native on solaris and it _sometimes_ seems
to consume 100% cpu time when I quit. This also happens, if I look
at certain web pages (with lots of java-apps). I suspect that some
threads are not terminated properly and instead busy loop somewhere.
Just as another data point.
