Grrr. So much for a quick, trivial-to-implement fix.

The "setarch i386" trick only works on the specific build of 
firefox included in the current 4.2.2EL-64 test repository.

I've figured out other scenarios where firefox always works, or
always breaks, but have not yet figured out why.

Back to banging my head against the monitor ;-)
