Chris, check this out later if you get a chance. I don't think it's a beta blocker.

resummarizing, cc-ing akkana who saw something like this last week.
The X server crash I was seeing (in mail/news under Xaccel on Linux) was possibly due to a much-too-long string being sent to the X server, or something like that. There was a bug (now fixed) in mailnews which caused the contents of an entire mailbox to be displayed as one very long line, and that crashed Xaccel. That bug was 19996.

bug in Solaris X-server, not m13
Move to M16 for now ...
Target Milestone: M15 → M16
Move to M21 target milestone.
Target Milestone: M18 → M21
Do we know which X server this user was using? Ill check it out with a solaris box at work tommrow, but I'm guessing this is some crufty X server that needs to be tracked down to play with.
I think I saw this on Solaris 2.6, a long time ago. This is technically not a mozilla bug, but a bug in the X-servers. We should make an attempt to fix this, but it's not a show-stopper for mozilla.
Just for the sake of completeness, I'll note that whatever X server a brand-new Ultra-10 uses has no problems with the given scenario. In fact, Moz runs great like that, even over ssh and a few network segments.
pavlov says this is fixed, and I see it working for me, linux display to solaris 2.6/8-bit
