I've just re-re-rebuilt mozilla from scratch using "make update" just to
be sure I get everything relatively current.

Modulo some minor aches with regard to getting all the interdependencies
rebuilt, it built.

But the reason for rebuilding it has not gone away; namely, it leaves
big rectangular hunks of colour all over the page, adding them when
one moves the mouse over a link on occasion.  The hunks can vary
from link-sized to full-vertical-screen sized (they don't seem to
travel horizontally, although sometimes if the colour block happens
to expand to hit a link elsewhere, that can trigger another colour
block.  This is not recursive, go figure).  Scrolling in particular seems
to trigger this effect.

Has anyone else experienced this phenomenon?

pkgsrc was freshly updated before the rebuild.  Userland
is of 1.6ZD vintage (kernel is 1.6-very-current (2 days ago)).

NetBSD: the power to swerve (penguins, worse than cane toads).
