Tracing troubles with frozen browsers

I wonder if someone might suggest a way of dealing with this:

Every time I visit one particular website's home page, I get a complete freeze and the loss of keyboard and mouse necessitating a reboot. The browser status bar starts with a "transferring data from ..." and then the whole thing freezes a second later. This happens under both kde 3.2.2 and gnome 2.2, and with firefox, galeon and konqueror - same result for all. It's the only website I've encountered that causes this.

So I'm guessing a crash of the xserver? SuSE 9.0 here running XFree86-4.3.0.1-46 and an Nvidia card. Which particular logs if any should I get checking, and can I set up a simple test to trap the error and at least get it logged somewhere? The website is a php-based one, and in fact it's the home of one of the more popular "CMS" scripts out there. It's a good script and what I want to do is find out whether the cause of the problem is 100% my setup or something in their php code, in which case I can post a bug report on their forums.

TIA

:)
