I wasn't able to load the page (timeout), but I'm wondering:  are you 
setting the cursor there?

There's an issue reported against OS X 10.6.4 related to setting cursors:
<http://quality.runrev.com/qacenter/show_bug.cgi?id=9021>

If you follow the links I added there from a note on the improve-rev 
list from Mark Wieder, you'll find that there are a great many apps 
crashing under OS X 10.6.4.

In some cases (including two instances with a Rev-based app I've been 
testing) it not only crashed the Rev engine, but also brought down the 
Finder and made most other user processes inaccessible, something that 
shouldn't be possible in a Unix system.

So if your issue is like those I've seen and like so many are seeing 
with other apps, we may have to wait for OS X 10.6.5 to fix them.
