Subjectkernel death (1.3.9[56])
This is to report two occurrences of Linux being killed (frozen, perhaps)
by netscape. (That is, after the command "netscape foo" there is no
netscape window but just silence.)

Phenomena: keyboard dead, mouse dead, modem dead, no reaction to ping,
no disk noises. In short, dead.

Circumstances:
Yesterday (or perhaps the day before): 1.3.95, lots of activity.

Today: 1.3.96, very quiet machine, no net activity, netscape
invoked for localhost, hardly any other processes. Just before
xmosaic had been invoked. [My daughter polishing her home page.]

There is no log. I cannot reproduce this at will.

PS - After writing `I cannot reproduce this at will' I tried somewhat more
to mimic my daughter's situation, and froze 1.3.96 again. Still, ten further
attempts didn't do this again. So: three occurrences, but not reproducible.
