I've gotten firefox to start running, but then it mysteriously exits.
(btw I needed to add the libgcc package to suse91_base, so anyone playing
with this will want to re-install)
It seems that it's calling waitpid with an options of 0x80000000 which
the kernel EINVAL's. That's probably one of the for-clone()-children-only
linux-specific options. Once I get some time to look at it that probably
won't take too long to fix, but I'll bet there'll be a few more things to fix.
