Description From 2006-05-07 01:26:06 PST
The recent form state change apparently caused a bunch of random memory trashers. Here's one set of steps that consistently reproduces a crash for me:

1) Go to http://www.cnn.com and wait for it to fully load.
2) Click any link.
3) Go back.

Darin has a patch for this attached to a bug where this was misdiagnosed as the cause.

Not at all. I've been waiting on review or I would have committed a while back.
