There is no tools -> error console if started from a terminal.  If
started from the desktop it is present, but the warnings are all
reported as Declaration dropped.  If they correspond to the weak
reference warnings, then they probably are not serious.

The trouble is that when the error happens, there is no recovery except
hard interrupt reboot (NMI).  I've been thinking of compiling the kernel
with the swap kernel enabled, so when this happened the replacement
kernel would swap in and enable me to see what is going on.

Alternatively, I see that FF 3.5.1 just was released, so I'll probably
try it and see if it fixes the problem.

Thanks for your responses.
