Hm. Just checked a different behaviour i recently saw... If i give it some time
after start, setting dust on to of the window :), it works quite better. If i
start it, and as soon as the window appears, put an URL in it, the
autocompleten is remarkably slow, the page needs a lot of time to load, and
usually, it crashes quite soon.

Besides this...

mozilla-bin in free(): warning: chunk is already free.

Zillions of this after terminating...

"not really perfectly clean" :)

And to avoid confusions: i'm talking about pkgsrc mozilla-gtk2. Yes, i like it
bloated, the Miata is nearly my fastest machine at home, and 768 MB RAM makes
it useable.

Hm. pkgsrc-2004Q3 works fine, it's an 1.7.3 there. Just besides some
instability issues. Any yes, opening the Mail thingy also crashes it here. 90MB
core for a web browser. Okay...
