[OpenLayers-Dev] Firefox crashes

To those who have had firefox crashes:

I think I was just able to work out the core reason for the Firefox
crashes we were seeing. Firefox's SVG implementation seems to strongly
dislike very large values. I've just made a commit that changes the
renderer to map all values into local pixel space.

This should fix the Firefox crashes. With WFS, Tim Schaub reported that
the patch on http://trac.openlayers.org/ticket/663 helped as well.

If you have been able to crash / lock up firefox in the past, please try
again with trunk. If you're still getting crashes, please apply
and then let the list know that it was needed.

I'd especially to get Stephen Woodbridge to report back on this: I can
no longer reproduce his problem on
http://dev.openlayers.org/sandbox/crschmidt/541/examples/ld-testv.html ,
which seems like a good sign, but other users are always better bug
testers than me :)
