Description bkosse 1999-10-22 00:09:59 EDT
I noticed that my system was exhibiting Windows-like
behavior. That is to say, it was slowing down noticibly as
time passed. Thinking I had a wayward program running, I
opened up top and saw 4 ld-linux.so.2 programs running, each
taking some 25% of the CPU time. Killing them all, I fired
up Netscape to see if there were any reported bugs and
noticed that ld-linux.so.2 started up again. I believe it is
loaded along with Netscape. However, it doesn't appear to
close down when Netscape does.

It appears ld-linux.so.2 is left hanging if Netscape is force closed
under Enlightenment 0.16 (perhaps others as well).
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-22 10:37:59 EDT
If you 'force-close' (as you put it) netscape when it's hung,
the child dns-query process goes into a loop. It's a known problem
with netscape.

The problem is in the netscpae binary, which we do not control.
