If you go to ftp://ftp.gimp.org/pub/gimp/v2.0/testing/README in this version of
Firebird, it accesses the site then hangs at 100% CPU.

Reproducible: Always

1. Go to ftp://ftp.gimp.org/pub/gimp/v2.0/testing/README

Actual Results:  
Hangs at 100% CPU

Expected Results:  
Load the file.

It's just a short text file that loads fine in IE 5.5.

Tested this using:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20040102

1. Initially had some problems - couldn't get the file, but no crash/hang.
2. Tried same thing in IE - got IE error message where you can "detect network
settings" etc...
3. Tried via ftp.exe session, could log in anonymously fine, and could get the
file ok.  The permissions were fine: rw-rw-r
4. Tried again in IE - worked.
5. Tried again in Firebird - worked.
6. Tried again in IE - failed, then worked.

Possibly just a busy FTP server?

David, try some more testing using a few different methods and report back with
your findings.

WFM, build 20040102, Windows XP.
Works for me using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6b)
Gecko/20040102 Firebird/0.7+

possibly just an overloaded server, given the results in comment 1

QA Contact: mconnor
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040107 Firebird/0.7+
(daihard; XFT+GTK2; optimized for P4/SSE-2)

Works fine. Although why Firebird would hang because of an overloaded server is
something I'm not too sure about...

Also works for me using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.0; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040109

Now that we have five people with different setups reporting this to be working
I'm resolving this. 
David, please try it again with a fresh profile or with reinstalling.
