Elevator use is odd- herky-jerky, and some other operations seem herky-jerky some of the time.  Something is not right.  (Opera has some page completion problems that are not predictable also.)

I just tried it on amd64 with FF 3.0.3, and no crash here. Do you think 
the strangeness may be flash related though? We are using the linux 
version of the Flash plugin right now, and until we get a native 
solution, I think flash will behave a bit weirdly :P
