60MB small, & gets rid of bugs - Enable debug in Firefox compile ; gre
Thanks Clay :)

Which list did you see this on? Maybe a good idea for you to send it to
that list also, besides me, for community memory & knowledge. :)

Thanks for the thought, clay, about the size 60MB being large.

My thought is that 60MB is small, compared to having bugs. I just saw a
2TB hitachi drive for $69? at 60MB is _nothing_ today. ;)

For pennies of storage, let's have Ubuntu put the debug info in there, &
get rid of bugs! :)

Will do, thanks.
