These sites work fine here. I think they might be sending you different
content, perhaps containing localised text, based on your IP address
which is tripping up the simple text backend. I get a similar crash when
I visit http://www.wikipedia.com/
The issue goes away if you use the experimental Pango patch for all text
rendering, so it looks like it's a bug in the simple text code path.
Perhaps it's failing to recognise strings of text that it doesn't support.
