I have been encountering the same hassle. I am
running KDE (usually) from Mandrake 6.0 and
My copy locks on boot IF I am too quick to change
from the opening screen (ie, any keystroke / any
click anywhere). My kludge is to simply wait until
all HD activity has ceased before changing
screens. Apparently Netscape is fussy about having
all of the code for a page loaded before going to
the next one ... although, with Netscape, this can
take a while.:(
If I let the opening screen "settle down" before
advancing to Messenger and then let it settle down
before trying to retrieve mail (a maddening 2-3
seconds :)), it is fine forever afterwards.
I gave up on Kmail because most of my friends are
on AOL and mail to them was beind lost in the AOL
system if I sent it via Kmail but not if I sent it
via Netscape. The sad part is, this lost mail
resulted in a rift between my girlfriend of 4
years and I that has yet to be patched over. This
was 3 months ago.
I have downloaded NS 4.7 but have not yet
installed it. Perhaps this fixes that
