i don't even know what safari is. i think it's some intertoobs reader application. 

what i really wish it would do would be to open up the release notes in my default intertoobs reader.

maybe it's cause the toobs are clogged. i hear they can get clogged sometimes with spam. i don't know why people eat that shit. it just fucks up the intertoobs.

I complained about this some time ago. IIRC we figured out it was happening because the installer scripts are being run as root, so it's using root's default browser.
