Description bkosse 1999-10-22 04:09:59 UTC
I noticed that my system was exhibiting Windows-like
behavior. That is to say, it was slowing down noticibly as
time passed. Thinking I had a wayward program running, I
opened up top and saw 4 programs running, each
taking some 25% of the CPU time. Killing them all, I fired
up Netscape to see if there were any reported bugs and
noticed that started up again. I believe it is
loaded along with Netscape. However, it doesn't appear to
close down when Netscape does.

Comment 1 bkosse 1999-10-22 04:17:59 UTC
It appears is left hanging if Netscape is force closed
under Enlightenment 0.16 (perhaps others as well).

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-22 14:37:59 UTC
If you 'force-close' (as you put it) netscape when it's hung,
the child dns-query process goes into a loop. It's a known problem
with netscape.

Comment 3 Cristian Gafton 2000-02-05 03:27:59 UTC
The problem is in the netscpae binary, which we do not control.
