window becomes unresponsive,
I can:
	1.  Go off to another desktop and do something else for awhile.
		When I return I _can_ scroll the window and operate all
		the 'controls'.  But, reloading, or clicking off to
		another (flash-y) URL will lock up the window again.
	2.  Repeatedly click on the window CLOSE [X] button until I get
