I couldn't get firefox to start up today. It's been starting slower and slower each day, and today it just hung. I started it with strace and found out where:

26486 connect(16, {sa_family=AF_UNIX, path="/tmp/orbit-jcomeau/linc-499b-0-51ac9
4b550270"}, 47) = 0
26486 writev(16, [{"GIOP\1\2\1\0T\0\0\0", 12}, {"\244\350\377\277\3\0\0\0\0\0\0\
0\34\0\0\0\0\0\0\0B\376"..., 84}], 2) = 96
26486 poll( 
26487 <... poll resumed> [{fd=8, events=POLLIN}], 1, 2000) = 0
26487 getppid()                         = 26486
26487 poll([{fd=8, events=POLLIN}], 1, 2000) = 0
26487 getppid()                         = 26486
...over and over again.
So I ran rm -r /tmp/orbit-jcomeau and now it works again. I love Unix.
