The problem seems to be tricky to hit, I was going to say I didn't
think we should carry it. But fedora are using it:
(dates in the patch are from earlier this year)
And at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=730856 it looks
like _some_ people have been seeing it. Comment 17 is informative,
and comment 19 points to a URI which does crash firefox-14.0.1 : it
works in lynx, I don't read Spanish but I think the page tells
people to use a different directory at the site. The URI in comment
5 doesn't crash firefox on a single test.
If anyone else using firefox or seamonkey can confirm that either of
these URIs crash their browser: http://bikemap.net (works for me) or
http://buscon.rae.es/draeI/SrvltGUIBusUsual?LEMA=XYZ then I suppose
we ought to add it.
