Dolphin was locking up my computer too but with 7:10. I got rid of it
and am using konqueror. Now my system is even running faster too.
Dolphin really sucks, I think. I gave it a good 6 months to see if I
would get used to it, I did not.  It can't ever view web pages! I
really don't know why anyone would want to change to Dolphin, even if
it worked well.
