An update -- since this posting, I've been running with a kernel from
April 28. I haven't had any hangs in Galeon; in fact, threads have
behaved quite wll. Just now, though, I got this:
assertion "0" failed: file "/usr/src/lib/libpthread/pthread.c", line 394, function "pthread__idle"
 Abort trap (core dumped) galeon
Does anyone want a core dump?
