[maemo-users] browser/browserd combo unpredictable and unreliable behaviour

This was meant to be a bug report, but since the bugtracker is
following the fate of the repositories (i.e. it's currently borked)
here it goes.


The new combo browser/browserd is very unreliable. Things that happened to me so far:

1) Browser apparently hangs or closes due to an "internal error". Sometimes killing browserd is enough, sometimes you have to restart it and sometimes a reboot is the annoying only way out.

2) Sometimes when you "open a link in a new window" and quickly try to switch to the original window (this is necessary since there's no "open in background window" option), the link will be opened in the original window and the new window remains blank with the url pointing to the old location.

3) Sometimes it is futile to try to select a window in the taskbar since the browser will put in the foreground whatever window it choses (usually the one it has just loaded).

None of this happened with chinook.
