I can confirm that I see something like this too. At work on Solaris 10 with
Firefox 1.5 I notice a sudden death of firefox when I let BigBrother refresh
itself for a while (X.org and firefox will grow both, and firefox will die
before X has a size where the OS may want to kill it). So it's not the new
X.org or FreeBSD.
