OK. I've done some more fiddling and it seems to be related to colour
depth - if I use 16-bit colour, Firefox (running remotely) is fairly
unstable. It crashes often and sometimes takes the X server down with it.
I've now switched to 24-bit colour, and it's a lot more stable (no crashes
yet, touch wood).
I'll try and do some more testing with 16-bit colour tomorrow and send you
