Yes I encounter the problem when not using postgresql. I switched over to
syslog logging and it core dumped doing that too.

I have found the cause its pop-up ads that are doing it. I can make it
segfault by navigating to places with certain popup ads.

How strange.
Anyone else experienced this?

Is it possibly something to do with the Fact i'm running it on freebsd and
not linux?

Do you have the packet associated with this event?

Since you are using postgresql 7.2, the changes to the timestamp field
don't apply from Frank AFAIK.

Do you encounter any problems not using the postgresql?

Don't use a big word where a diminutive one will suffice.
