This bug has appeared on sparc and x86 for me.

The default install of 6.0 with Netscape, trying to use Java
causes Netscape to die a horrible death (bus error).

It seems that it is croaking in "GetFontList", and by
reconfiguring xfs to look at all the available fonts that
are installed (including the ones in
/var/share/fonts/default) it fixes it. It shouldn't die
getting a list of fonts. I suspect that it tried to get a
list of specific fonts and couldn't get any, and got a NULL
list back, and it croaked becaues it doesn't check for
NULLs. But that is just my suspicion.
