Re: w3m freezes / 99% cpu?

I've found that "export GC_NPROCS=1" before starting w3m on Mac OS X 10.5.1 avoids the problem. It seems to be a bug with dual core CPU (and possibly multi-processors too). By looking into the call stack and the boehm garbage collector source, I was able to identify that environment variable as being a factor in how the GC works. Solved the problem for me.
