A lot of these problems were cleared up by using the glibc version of
Netscape as opposed to the libc5 version.  However, the glibc version adds
its own set of wrinkles to the sea otter that is Netscape.  I've had it
crash not only on java pages, but on username/password input boxes as
well.  For example, at least half the time I try to log into Cisco's site
with my smartnet account, it will go foo and dump core, which pisses me
off since I then have to use my Windows box to log into Cisco's site..
