I haven't tried it with vanilla options. The problem occurs randomly and
almost all my work is connected with one project at the moment. I
installed both 1.6.1 and 1.6.2 from the rpm binary for RH 8.0. The
Compaq Deskpro EN has 319mb of memory but this seems to be eaten up
quickly with Mozilla running. Most of the physical memory gets cached
