i haven't as of yet, but thanks for the lead.

the issue is more subtle than i realized last night. in galeon directly
entering www.google.com in the url bar results in a long pause and then
nothing. but, if i enter some phrases to search in the url bar then the
google search results page comes up with links that i'm able to get to.

so at this point the situation is that a majority of the pages load fine
under galeon, but for a few (google, slashdot) there is no joy, or only
partial joy.
