gets redirected to some other address and then locks the browser completely. The only two things you can do are:

- moving the windows
- kill the browser

I have a PowerBook G4 with Tiger (10.4.11) on it. iTunes was not running when trying to open those links.

Btw. this also happens with OmniWeb 5.10 sneakypeek which is also a WebKit based Browser

Solution to this problem is cleaning user and system cashes (most easy way to do this with Onyx). See also: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2039477&tstart=15 and related topics on that matter.

Bug seems to occur on 10.4 PPC only when I browse Apple discussions. WebKit/Safari is not ignoring corrupt cashes in the right way or it does create corrupt cashes. I'm not sure if this is a WebKit (only) issue and might need a Radar submission.
