I've also just upgraded to iceweasel 10.0.2-1+alpha and have it running
on the xfce4 desktop. It worked for a while reading a few web pages, but
has now locked up and it using whatever spare CPU it can take. I can
still use the desktop ok---just a little bit sluggish.
Yep, there's a problem alright.
I can connect to the iceweasel process with gdb but I don't have the
symbols for iceweasel installed so am not getting any useful information
with a backtrace. I will install iceweasel-dbg and try again.
