Maybe it is the same bug that I have, which seems to be a nspr bug. see:

http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=39869
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=487844
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=439144

I'll adapt Wan-teh Chang's patch to seamonkey 2.0a3 somewhere next week to
see if it fixes things up and let peoples on the BLFS list know if that
worked.

And by the way, if someone got the divine rights to change it; seamonkey
1.1.9 by the BLFS book is obsolete and should be upgraded to 1.1.16.

The nspr bug (if that is) mentioned above affect 1.1.9 as well as 1.1.16 and
2.0a3; there are also reports from firefox and thunderbird users.

Sorry for my bad english and have a nice day,
Dominic.
