hangs firefox on my machine if I click "print".  (If it matters, I'm 
running -current, xorg, and firefox-1.0.6nb1 compiled from source a 
week ago.)

By "hangs" I mean it never does anything productive, but seems to be in 
an infinit CPU loop.  It doesn't even refresh its piece of the screen.
This is one of two failure modes I see, the other of course being a 
core dump.
