Significant Browse performance problem

In Build 3.2.0 for XO-4 (build 11) I have noticed a significant browse
performance problem. On some pages, browse causes X to lock up for many
seconds. The mouse pointer stops moving and you can see (if logged in
via SSH) that X is consuming >80% of the cpu.
causes several many second freezes during it's loading.
This does not occur with Browse 149.7 on XO-System 1a for XO-4 (build 34).
I also noticed this with an earlier 3.2.0 build and google docs but
didn't have time to report it then, based on that experience I believe
this problem is a regression as google docs worked really well on XO-4
I didn't find any obvious bugs, https://dev.laptop.org/ticket/12675
seems somewhat relevant but probably isn't something that has regressed.
I think I saw this problem with the most recent XO-system 1a build 46
(is that the new name for dextrose??) earlier this evening, but I can no
longer be sure. I have not tried to reproduce on XO-1.75.
Sorry, not raising a ticket, must sleep.
Also, Browse 153 (latest from aslo) fails to start on 13.2.0 build 11
with an ImportError: No module named progressicon.
