(Tested 2.2.17 and 2.4) Ive never seen something like this on Linux before SYSLOG: kernel: VM: do_try_to_free_pages failed for XF86_SVGA; kernel: VM: do_try_to_free_pages failed for kswapd this goes on for every process which is running and the reset key is only thing which works!!!!!!!!!! Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Go to http://www.pcgames.de Actual Results: The complete System crashes! And this on stable Linux Expected Results: show the page part of the syslog: kernel: VM: do_try_to_free_pages failed for kswapd kernel: VM: do_try_to_free_pages failed for ascloc last message repeated 29 times ... and so on System hangs

When I try this on linux, the browser starts using up memory very quickly, allocating over 300M of memory within 10 seconds. The symptoms described by the reporter are a result of all system memory and swap being allocated (and waiting a bit more would have caused the kernel's virtual memory system to kill the mozilla process). I see the following assertion: ###!!! ASSERTION: attempt to create circular frame list: 'aNextSibling != this', file nsFrame.cpp, line 2200 ###!!! Break: at file nsFrame.cpp, line 2200 right before the memory usage becomes ridiculous. Attaching a stack trace of where the browser is (hit C-c in gdb and then 'where').

I got "kernel: VM: do_try_to_free_pages failed" when I opened a very large spam(over 1M).
This (http://www.pcgames.de/) is working fine for me on a Linux build from today, 2001-06-20. Could have been fixed by any number of things.
