Comment 6 Need Real Name 2006-09-01 18:42:40 EDT
Not any more. The problem has disappeared.
btw why do I get two NEEDINFO requests instead of one?
Comment 7 Matthew Barnes 2006-09-03 09:40:21 EDT
Okay, I'll assume whatever problem you were seeing has been fixed and close this
bug.  Feel free to re-open it if you start getting the same crashes again.
