Crash when after entering more than 64k of text into

Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

This may actually be a sun-java6-plugin bug, but I'm not sure.

To reproduce:
 * visit
 * paste at least 64k of text into the first (large) text area, then hit "Go"
 * Crash!

If you paste only say 63.5k bytes of text, the java applet starts and behaves normally, so it definitely seems to be an issue with >64k of data.

This is with current jaunty (and jaunty-proposed). firefox version is 3.0.11+build2+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.9.04.1

Java version:

$ dpkg -l *java* | grep ^i
ii ca-certificates-java 20081028
ii java-common 0.30ubuntu4
ii javascript-common 5
ii libaccess-bridge-java 1.24.0-0ubuntu2
ii sun-java6-bin 6-13-1
ii sun-java6-jdk 6-13-1
ii sun-java6-jre 6-13-1
ii sun-java6-plugin 6-13-1
ii tzdata-java 2009i-0ubuntu0.9.0
