I'll try that on my amd64 machine. I always had the impression that the
problem is much, much worse on amd64. Trying to use google maps would be
a surefire way to crash firefox on my amd64 machine, but it works fine
on my i386 machine. (Strangely enough, with older firefox and older
NetBSD (2.0) it also works fine at work on an amd64 box).
