testcase (WARNING: might hang your browser)

STR
1. save the attached testcase + "white.webm" locally in the same directory
2. open the HTML file
3. hover the mouse over the menubar

ACTUAL RESULTS
(firefox:5194): Gtk-WARNING **: Error loading icon: Failed to open file '/usr/share/icons/oxygen/16x16/actions/edit-paste.png': Too many open files
etc.

When quitting Firefox I get some errors during shutdown so I suspect
there could be an associated dataloss as well.

I don't see evidence that this is a security bug or needs to remain hidden.

Can we open this?  Is this still relevant?

I think we can open this. I have nebulous plans for shutting down idle decoders which may help here.
