Mosaic is generally pretty stable. Although I do remember it being the
cause of every single crash under Ultrix 4.3 on my HS's DECstation.
Something it didn't like about the ISDN software/hardware. It would
always crash with ISDN_DMA_ERROR. Ultrix 4.5 didn't have the ISDN
package, and I never tried Mosaic on it.
I think the only way to get around the start page is to implicitly
specify one. i.e. Mosaic http://www.mypage.com What we did on Ultrix
was make a sym link as mosaic -> Mosaic http://etc.etc. IIRC
