The first loading of https://www8.lsac.org/login/newuser.asp causes the browser to stop refreshing its windows and spin on the CPU. The status bar says "Resolving host www8.lsac.org." If I hit stop, I get a blank page. If I then try to load the page again in that window, it loads almost instantly. DNS lookups from the command line are very fast. This happens regardless of whether I type the URL into the location bar or click on the link to it (from http://www.lsac.org, "check your lsac file status online" button on the left). The page loads quickly in Communicator 4.78. This is the linux 10-05-2001 nightly build on FreeBSD. I've been seeing this for at least a couple of nightlies now, though. It's not new to this build.
Confirming 2001100403 NT4 This happens very very very often in the last few weeks.
marking NEW based on the last comment
I just tried it on 2001100503 Windows 2000 and got the same problem there too.
now on first load i get the "redirection limit exceeded" message... possibly a dupe of bug 115252. cc'ing badami
-> badami (this may be fixed already)
