[Camino] Please help me test a patch

Hi there,

still using the CFMessage version which turned out to be the fastest 
and most reliable Camino I have used in a long time.

I have had exactly one crash with it and the rest of the time, using it 
was pure joy.

The only issue I have had with it so far is that sometimes, Camino 
seems to render "prematurely", i.e. it shows the site content for a 
second, then the window goes blank again until it presents the final 
result... But all in all, this is a welcome change.

Now if only scrolling was a bit faster... ;-)

Thanks for your efforts,
