Just committed r3538 which fixes the QUIT signal in the program you 
posted on 03/09/08. Turned out to be an "Alarm clock" signal which was 
failing because it expected the address of the handler to be within 
application space. Unfortunately, it probably won't fix anything in 
Firefox because alarms are disabled in the desktop anyway.

I'm having trouble building this due to a missing ro-ar command. I've 
updated from svn and reapplied install-env - is this a script I should 
have in /home/riscos/env ?
