Did you get a talkback report?  I can't reproduce it, but others on irc said it
hanged for them. Doesn't happen on 1.7.3, so aviary only.
This site gets mozilla stuck in PresShell::ProcessReflowCommands() with a reflow
command that apparently doesn't want to be processed. The number of pending
reflow commands appears to remain at 2...
Ever confirmed: true
This is what dbaron and I came up with to fix this bug, the problem is that
SizeDiv() in nsObjectFrame ends up setting attributes from within reflow code,
which is a no-no. This fix makes the nsObjectFrame code pull the reflow command
caused by the attribute changes out of the queue, and this prevents this
infinite reflow loop.

Are we tracking fixes like this that need to land on trunk as followups to the
plugin landing in some way?

I'd mark this as blocking the original bug that landed this stuff, but I can't
find that one...
Depends on: 244125
Should this be on 1.7 to keep sync with Gecko?
Michael, none of the dependencies of bug 244125 are on 1.7 yet.  In fact,
they're not even on trunk yet....
