web page crashes mozilla

The URL http://www.businessweek.com/technology/cnet/stories/998420.htm
(which, oddly enough, is a story about Red Hat) crashes mozilla while loading
I experience Mozilla crashing on that web page too.
Tested with :
- "mozilla-1.2.1-26" - Red Hat Linux release 9 (Shrike).
- "mozilla-1.2.1-27" - Rawhide.
Works here. Can you get a stack trace (assuming you know how to do that?)
Tried it a couple of times in a row with Mozilla today and each time I tried it,
I also tried Konqueror. Konqueror works fine displaying that page.
Interesting to note that I also tried that page yesterday with Mozilla, as you
requested, and then it seemed to work correctly.
I suspect that it's some dynamically part of the webpage that triggers the bug
in Mozilla. Maybe an advert, or something.
Can you try visiting this page again, Christopher?
I used "strace -o /tmp/mozcrash mozilla" to capture some information of the
crash. I'll attach the output of this strace to this bugzilla.
If you can provide me with a better method to record crash information I'll
gladly do that.

strace output of Mozilla crashing
Upgraded to "mozilla-1.4b-1" from Rawhide.
This version of Mozilla fixed this bug for me.
The current ad being pushed in the middle of the page doesn't trigger this bug,
whatever it was....
Marking RAWHIDE based on comments. Thanks!
