Firefox and Opera work. The same is true for a lot of programs which
come with linux_base-fc4 (they didn't worked without the patch when
osrelease was set to 2.6.16). So it isn't totally broken. What it buys
us is reports about more programs which may work or not. For those
which don't, we may get a report about an open source program which
fails. And knowing about a broken program where can get the source and
compile a debuggable version would help in debugging a lot. ATM Roman
can only do a rough guess what's wrong.
