I haven't seen this at all on by iBook, and I use Netscape quite a
bit. Ordinairly, I can quit just fine, but when it wedges, I go and
kill it (from the command line, though I really hope that doesn't
matter), and it doesn't hose the system.

I'm also using NEWPMAP, and -current, on a system with 384M. The only
obvious difference is G4 vs. G3.
