When you pass the mouse over a link, gecko consumme a lot of cpu. 
Under windows 2000, it take up to 20% of my cpu(athlon 2800+). Under linux, it
take up to 50%(up to 100% under some circumstances: using galeon with one other
tab open).
Other browser(such as konqueror(linux), opera(linux), internet
explorer(win2000))  only use up to 5% of cpu.

Reproducible: Always

2. pass the mouse aver the links
3. look at the cpu usage 

Actual Results:
