The screen stops updating, but the windows are still there. A Control-C from the command line aborts the app. I do not know if this is a seperate issue, but the same thing will happen even if using the browser with only mouse operations withing loading ~5 pages. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open mozilla 2.click on location box 3. Actual Results: window (all if multiple) stopped updating Expected Results: not crash? System details RH 8.0 on an Athlon 2200+ 512 MB RAM kernel 2.4.21-pre5 glibc-2.3.2-4.80 kde-* 3.0.3 Things done to attempt to eliminate the problem: 1. reboot 2. run mozilla as root 3. erase .mozilla and start from new profile 4. tried RPM, binary tarball, and building from source None affected the problem. Mozilla 1.0.1 runs fine. Running 1.3 as 'strace mozilla' shows trace ending at a wait4 when child thread spawns. Nothing unusual noted. No other applications on same system are having problems.
