Description lutz 1999-10-12 21:32:36 UTC
Since I updated to XFree86 3.3.5-1.5 the login dialog in
netscape (I tryed 4.61 and 4.7 and both fail) is no longer
working: When I want do download a page which is password
protected the login dialog appears but when I press Enter
after typing in user-name and passord netscape crashes with
a bus error. This happens even if I supply the wrong
I have RH5.2 and kernel 2.0.36 and I have installed all
relevant Erratas. I installed netscape 4.7 from SRPM and
4.61 from the binary rpms and both crash in this situation.

I can confirm this problem.
Happens with earlier versions of netscape as well. It crashes
sometimes, sometimes it does not. But its always while accessing
password protected web pages. Really annoying.
