Go to the URL above, highlight text, and immediately after, attempt to scroll 
with the mousewheel.  The browser completely freezes/locks-up for about two 
seconds, at which point scrolling with the mousewheel works fine and at normal 
speed...

This may be related to, or even a dup of, many of the "long page scrolls 
slowly" reports I've been seeing around, though it seems like a different 
situation.

Nevermind...this seems to have nothing to do with the mousewheel.  Highlighting 
text on that page in general locks up the browser for a couple seconds every 
time.
