I know, that was the point - to figure out whether the problem was
endianness in the core or something in the frontend.  As it works for
you, the problem must be in the frontend somewhere.  I compiled my
port with full Cairo plotters (code is pretty much identical to the
gtk plotters) and it still does it, so I'm tending towards something
in the bitmap plotters not being quite right.

A nose through the mess of CSS on Wikipedia shows that those tabs have
PNG background images from a data: URI like the following:


I pasted that into the NetSurf URL bar and got the following assert:
assertion "!c->locked" failed: file "content/content.c", line 746

So I suppose that needs fixing before I can figure out what's going on

I did try it in another browser and that data: is a white line, which
is pretty much what I'd expect.
