Hi *,

i noticed the same thing. One of the Mozilla threads seems to be stuck
in sawait. Looks pretty similar to the xmms hang earlier on this list
when going by the symptoms. The thread seems to crawl a bit when the
mouse is moved - but that may also be wishful thinking.
I still need to try out todays kernel nevertheless as there have been some
fixes in that area (kern_lwp.c).
