Hey all,

I've been seeing some..weird hangs in firefox, seems to be kind of 
random, and when it does hang, it usually recovers on its own. The time 
it takes to recover varies greatly though, anywhere from a few seconds, 
to a few minutes. I haven't done much investigating (starting that now) 
but according to top, when it hangs, its in the 'kqread' state. Anyone 
know anything about this?
