May or may not be related, but since I updated to FF 3.0.8 it has been
failing several times a day on F10. There is never anything
in /var/log/messages. I do have regular segfaults with npviewer (always
at the same place in libpthread-2.9.so). These however *don't* crash FF.

I switched to 3.1b3 (not an rpm but downloaded directly from Mozilla)
and it hasn't failed so far.

The 3.0.8 is an x86_64 rpm, the 3.1b3 is an i386 binary. On my Asus
netbook (i386) 3.0.8 has never failed.
