More on the vague rumors front, this is in the changelog for
xserver-common version 3.3.4-1 that i found on the mirrors this evening:
* patch #011: changed Imakefiles to work around alleged egcs optimization
breakage of netscape (Adam Heath)
i haven't been able to crash it opening and closing windows since
(although segfault is /.ed, and opening and closing segfault windows was a
good way to make it crash for me!). And i finally can login with the
username/password box that always crashed it before.
For the curious, i'm using the navigator from the navigator-smotif-461
package (i don't need no steenkin' mail and news and wysinwyg html
editor in my web browser!). wmaker from the wmaker package, xserver-svga.
Anyone else have any success stories? Or failure stories?
