I clicked on the "Donate NOW" box on the front page, and it happened
during the redirect.  I didn't get to see that they'd switched to
Convio at that point, because I wanted to keep the detail around, and
because hanging on that dialog suspends *all* of firefox's threads.

I finally released it, and I see that it's working OK now; I also see
that they switched that processing to Convio, and perhaps I got caught
in an out-of-phase moment.

I suppose I know better than to assume it's really broken until it
breaks three times in fifteen minutes (my own rule, ironically).

Sorry, all.

Cheers,
