I wouldn't be too sure about that assumption...

We are talking about FreeBSD here, aren't we?

Did you file any bug reports?

Apart from all that, Galeon 1.3.9 claims to be source compatible with
Mozilla 1.4, 1.5a, 1.5b, and trunk (
http://galeon.sourceforge.net/news/index.php#64), so one can exspect
that Mozilla 1.5+ will be supported by Galeon 1.3.x a.k.a Galeon 2
sooner or later. The Galeon developers state that they plan to keep
Galeon 1 source compatible with the most recent Mozilla versions, too.
