phoenix was usable on my AS255 (running 1.6.2_RCsomething), but then I did the
mistake to upgrade a few packages, including to switch from phoenix to
mozilla-firebird.  It's unusable, but it seems to be a problem in
some other library, probably related to threads: typing in the URL windows
show a character at a time, but a regular interval (about 1s), just as if a
thread was looping, and interrupted periodically to let others threads run.
My package update upgraded glib/gtk and pth too, I don't know which one is to
blame here.
