this bug is only reproducable when the link is clicked in slashdot, but when
entered directly it works fine.

my mozilla (same version) also froze, but memory usage did not increase.

The page "Linux in Hollywood" no longer exists at the URL listed in the Slashdot
article, nor can I find it when searching the technewsworld.com site.  As this
article is the only means of reproducing this bug (that I know of), I'm going to
have to mark this as WFM.
