i found that if i edit the junkbuster blockfile while netscape is
running it will usually crash on the next network access.  also
restarting junkbuster will usually kill netscape too.  so long as i
leave the junkbuster files alone netscape seems fine.  its only when i
tinker with junkbusters config files/blockfiles that netscape starts
dying.  

do nuke netscapes cache after altering junkbusters config though.
