Comment 11 for bug 314713

I agree it is not a firefox bug but it is very definitely a bug with something in ubuntu. I have antagonistically associated it with glibc in the hopes that someone there will have a clue - sorry if it is bad form.

Further information from me:
updated firmware on ADSL router to ADSL Software Version: V2.00B12... - not a fix
Linux akoya 2.6.27-11-generic #1 SMP Wed Apr 1 20:57:48 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux
ubuntu 8.10
Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 02)

I'm happy to do local debugging if anyone is willing to guide - I'm just not sure where to look next.
