I did a cvsup last night. Wasn't really watching it, but it was over
pretty quickly, so I'd say that there wasn't that much change. Anyways,
this is what I have now:

FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE #0: Sun Jan 21 12:52:35 CET 2007
root at  sparc64

Gotta change the name of the computer. Sunny is just too corny! :-)

Not much has changed apart from the dates. And nothing has changed
regarding Firefox. I completely deinstalled it - which took its sweet
time. :-) And I also deinstalled Thunderbird and all of the dependencies
of those two that I could find. Then I reinstalled Firefox with pkg_add -r
in case there was an update in the tree.

I still get that segfault, so I'm afraid someone may be looking a little
longer there.
