When I upgraded my SS5 to latest woody, which means a new glibc, this
version of netscape stopped working. It gives a Bus error when trying
to start it. Although there are no debugging symbols in netscape
itself, gdb gives this, if it's of any help:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x502cf1f0 in siglongjmp () from /lib/libc.so.6

Has anyone else seen this, when upgrading their woodies?

Running Mozilla on this machine is completely out of the
question. Starting M17, and it immediately takes 30M RSS. I only have
64M RAM. Sure, it worked, but it was dead slow. Right now, I'm running
netscape remote from a LinuxPPC machine.
