show locks <pid> gives nothing for all cloned mozilla processes. This
strikes me as odd. Another strange thing is that it seems to have a
local effect at first (ie only mozilla hangs), but when trying to
compose an email on the same machine (for example), it locks up hard.

I give you a complete trace when I call it a day at the office. In the
mean time, this is roughly it (warning, from memory):


My guess is that everything beginning with ithread_loop is related to
me breaking into the debugger with CA-ESC.

When I get back home again, I'll try this on Alpha as well. The Alpha
has already got a serial console, so it's easier to experiment at this

Please standby... :-)
