NOTE: The "Version" and "Component" boxes are garbage becaiuse they don't work
with Opera 9.10: 

"Version" is apparently a text entry box containing "unspecified" and can't be
changed. "Component" is the same, but its two lines can be selected individually
but not changed. I was surprised the bug report was accepted because the next
page said to go back and supply a component name.

This is being input via Mozilla, which shows them as drop-down lists, but they
are still not alterable to anything sensible.

Can you switch ttys when this occurs?

There's not really anything we can do here.  Even if we identified a kernel
problem, there's no way to get an updated kernel onto the install media.

The only thing I can suggest is to upgrade to a newer release.
