I finally got to test this on a RHEL4 box, and the bug does not exist on
a package downloaded from mozilla.com. It *does* exist on FC5 using the
same download from mozilla. It also does not appear on the windows

The bug was confirmed by others on the list at least a month ago. I
gave very simple steps to reproduce the bug, and it's been reproduced by
others on the list. Are you saying that you can't reproduce the error?
Isn't a single method or reproducing the bug in two different
applications sufficient to prove there is a problem somewhere?
