Works for me. BUT, I know what your problem is. I bet if you wait for a day, or exit and restart X, everything will work again. If I'm right, your Mozilla is actually spinning when it tries to startup. It is performing the same ioctl() in a loop. Exiting X windows makes everything better again. If so, this is a dupe of Bug 46409. Please let us know either way.
the messages in bug 46409 look very similar to mine, and it feels like a "very tight loop" e.g. there is no hard disk activity. but I quit and restarted the X server (via KDM) and tried again. Still the same problem. Will try tomorrow.
firstname.lastname@example.org - is this now working for you? Gerv
Yup. M17 and a recent build both load.
