Comment 1 Thomas Hartwig 2005-11-10 09:51:42 EST
It seems to be related to the special kernel I use. I tried the standard one and
it seems to work without freezing. I will talk to the kernel vendor.

Comment 2 Thomas Hartwig 2005-11-11 05:28:56 EST
The problem seemed to be an inconsitency in the mozilla package for my
installation. I reinstalled mozilla and it works fine until now. The problem
occured even faster with a brand new kernel. Sorry for the noise.
