This has also been reported by other people including myself.  There 
doesn't seem to be any progress on diagnosing the problem.  The only 
thing I've been able to notice is that if I run truss on the firefox 
process during it's slowdown/hang it shows that firefox is repeatedly 
calling the kse_release system call.
