firefox 3 causing xorg to suck up all available CPU

I installed firefox 3 from ports in the pre-release phase (via
marcusmerge) and rebuilt it as needed to keep it current with the port
after it was committed. I have since noticed that if I start firefox 3
and keep it open (whether I am using it, or I have it minimized) that
it will eventually cause Xorg to consume all available CPU. If I kill
ff3 it will sometimes allow X to recover, otherwise I have to
completely exit X and restart to get it back to normal.
I have since re-installed firefox 2 in order to confirm that things
work properly with it open, and all is well, so it pretty much has to
be ff3 that is the culprit.
Anyone else seeing this?
