I d/l version 0.9.9 sever days after release and installed on my wk2
workstation.  After leading the browser and viewing random pages, my machine
rebooted upon scrolling of a page.

The reboot happened twice on two diffrent pages.  

Reinstalled 0.9.8 went back to the same page and no problems.
reboot ?
Do you got a blue screen ?

I never saw this on 3 different windows 2000 systems...

Some W2K installs are designed to reboot when they encounter a STOP error.  This is handy in fooling people into thinking they kicked the power cord when the OS **** out, but it makes troubleshooting hard.

If this is repeatable, I suggest the reporter disable this auto-reboot feature in the OS (system properties somewhere) and get info from the blue screen.

I'm thinking it's actually a video driver issue.  I've run into this with IE when scrolling pages with certain versions of ATI drivers.
