I have been having the "Netscape crashes with bus error when a window is
closed" problem for some time now. My system is up-to-date with potato. 
Last week, I decided to test this problem with every 'navigator-smotif-*'
package. Every navigator-smotif-* package in slink and potato (that's
versions 4.06, 4.07, 4.08, 4.5 and 4.6) was affected.

BTW, this crash happens both when I hit the 'close window' button and when
I hit the 'Close' option in the 'File' menu. But it doesn't happen every
time I do this. My impression is that it even has begun to happen less
often, recently.
