Just to keep parity in the world, it is getting easier to find pages
that hang a current galeon built without threads. ;-) (eg. on a mid
jan-2003 -current.)  The latest galeon version built from pkgsrc is
particularly bad when using the middle button to preload a few pages
into alternate tabs.  The first hint that something is amiss is when
the tabs stay red instead of eventually turning blue.  Iconifying and
reopening galeon shows that it is certifiably stuck.  Sending a SIGTEM
will cause it to exit, but if one is so foolish as to try to startup
the next galeon with the checkpointed URL's one will get an immediate
hang.  Galeon and/or Mozilla just isn't that reliable yet even without
