Package: iceape
Version: 1.1.9-1
Severity: important

This page currently causes a repeated crash in iceape and iceweasel for


Other people in #debian report the same thing.  One said they observed
the crash with java disabled and javascript blocked.  Disabling
extensions does not prevent it either.

Several other factoids:

* a copy of the page obtained with "wget -k -p" does not cause the crash

* I've kept a wireshark log of the traffic that caused the crash, in  
  case the page above (or evil third-party content) changes
