 Sometimes something happens during load of a new page in a tab, and then
 other tabs show loading circles instead of pages, and nothing happens,
 except increase of
 1,696 (100.0%) -- queued-ipc-messages
 └──1,696 (100.0%) ── content-parent(???, pid=3796, open channel,
 0x133abab8, refcnt=46)
 which leads to OOM of the main process. (Killing child process brings TBB
 back to mind.)
