 Replying to [comment:4 greenfeld]:
 > It is possible to crash X Windows by using Browse doing this in 11.3.1
 >  1. Go to the Google Image search page.
 >  2. Search for "Golden Gate Bridge".
 >  3. Choose to see "Large" images.
 >  4. Click on the first entry.  X Windows will segfault doing a memcpy.

 I got the same crash opening a large image with Browse from the Journal.
