plugger-3.2-2.i386.rpm causes Bus error in Netscape

Installing plugger-3.2-2.i386.rpm causes "Bus error" in Netscape
This package is on the 6.2 Powertools disk. Sorry for having list it under
bugzilla. It doesn't come up in the list of components.
What version of netscape are you running? Also, did you run netscape prior to
installing plugger, of after?
I am have 4.72-6 package versions of netscape running on my machine and I can't
reproduce this problem with plugger-3.2-2.
I am running netscape-communicator-4.72-6 on a clean 6.2 install.
Netscape works prior to installing plugger, fails to run after installing
plugger, and then runs again after removing plugger.
I can duplicate this problem. I can do a stack trace when I have time and try
to see what is going on.
I updated to netscape communicator 4.73-1 (Sorry, I need the box for
development). I can not reproduce this error with 4.73-1.
It was consistently reproducible with 4.72-6.
I haven't been able to reproduce this either. That's not to say that I haven't
ever seen it occur, since I have. We couldn't reproduce the problem on different
machines though. OK. We have a fix, new version of Netscape :)
This problem was not fixed by a new version of Netscape. It was probably fixed
by tmpwatch removing the /tmp/ndebug file. See bug #11936 for more information.
