check out http://ftp.us.kernel.org/. The browser (1.0rc2) hangs forever trying
to resolve the name. A check with nslookup shows:


<shell>$ nslookup ftp.us.kernel.org
Note:  nslookup is deprecated and may be removed from future releases.
Consider using the `dig' or `host' programs instead.  Run nslookup with
the `-sil[ent]' option to prevent this message from appearing.

which makes me think that perhaps mozilla (which has its own dns resolver,afaik)
does not handle large DNS responses correctly.

I'm runing on rehad 7.2, with
mozilla-nss-1.0rc2-0
mozilla-js-debugger-1.0rc2-0
mozilla-psm-1.0rc2-0
mozilla-1.0rc2-0
mozilla-dom-inspector-1.0rc2-0
mozilla-nss-devel-1.0rc2-0
mozilla-nspr-1.0rc2-0
mozilla-devel-1.0rc2-0
mozilla-nspr-devel-1.0rc2-0
mozilla-chat-1.0rc2-0
mozilla-mail-1.0rc2-0


Hope this helps!

we don't have a resolver, but we do have some higher-level caching.

Putting a large, (likely TCP-transfered) request into the testcases is something
I have wanted to do for a long time.

REOPEN: I'd like a WFM in linux. This could be a platform specific problem.
