My running environment:
1. CVSup-ed source tree and port tree on August 15th 12:20 (calculated for
2. sysctl compat.linux.osrelease=2.6.16
3. New ports: linux_base-fc-4_7, linux-xorg-libs-6.8.2_5,
    linux-gtk-1.2.10_4 and linux-gtk2-2.6.10

Here, Adobe Reader 7.0.8 doesn't work at all but its beautiful Adobe Logo.
Mozilla 1.7.12 (GTK 1) and Firefox 1.0.7 (GTK 2) don't work at all but
their corpse processes. Firefox (GTK 2) works occasionally, so that
I can write mail to you in it.

I'm afraid that debugging those large programs is difficult. Their strike
probably has something to do with userland runtime libraries such as GLIBC
and XLib.

I don't know the meaning of kernel messages:
