The problem is that I had around 100 tabs and xulrunner-6.0 was using
roughly 1-1.5GB VIRT memory, so is 1.5GB the upper limit?

xulrunner-7.0 seems to use the same amount, let me see if it will be
PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND
2886 luca 20 0 1147m 727m 24m S 10 36.3 3:27.64 xulrunner-bin
Two things I have completely forgot to add while reporting the bug:
a) no external plugins here (no Flash/Gnash, no Java)
b) xulrunner is the main battery drainer (see the CPU/MEM consumption
above), which is a bad effect other than the hibernation one already
reported, here the powertop output for the same session above:
Usage Events/s Category Description
132.1 ms/s 373.4 Process /usr/lib/xulrunner-7.0/xulrunner-bin
Gismo / Luca
PS, I do not want to leave xulrunner/conkeror, so please do not tell me
that no one upstream cares about that ;-)
