Hi Kees Jan,

This is a known bug in B4, it has problems with frame pages. You'll see the 
same behavior on Google Groups, for example. All betas after B4 don't have 
this problem. 

The updated port for B7 is in PR ports/56181 
(http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=56181), but so far I haven't 
found a committer to commit it.

Best regards,
