Hmmm...  That's very much like same as the problem I've been having with
Netscape-6 under the suse_linux-2.2 emulation on NetBSD-1.5F/i386!

I get a bit further with Netscape and can do most anything but browse
remote web pages (or ftp servers).

With Netscape-6 the error is:

	Error loading URL 804b000d

and a pop-up dialog box claims (wrongly -- no packet is ever sent) that
the connection was refused.

I had JavaScript disabled at the time though ... I wonder what happens
with it enabled....  no difference, sigh....

It seems to be doing DNS queries though because it sits twiddling its
thumbs when I try to go to a remote site with slow DNS....   :-)

Maybe it's not the same problem at all.
