Description major 2007-04-16 11:22:15 UTC
Description of problem:
While running the 32-bit version of firefox- (on AMD Opteron x86_64
platform with the Adobe Flash Plugin, the program will intermittently
freeze with "double free or corruption" after writing a backtrace and partial
memory map to the terminal. Each time, I have to SIGKILL the firefox processes
with the bottom-most child in a futex. I was running firefox on one computer
while viewing its X display on a different computer. I am including an
attachment with three different instances of this behavior.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
I have not been able to predict the failure.
