Firefox 3.5pre Temporarily Goes Insane

I just fired up Firefox 3.5b4 and did a Check for Updates, downloaded 3.5pre and restarted.  The profile didn’t quite load up and seemed to be hanging (and working the hard drive) so I killed it.  I then noticed my disk space had dropped precipitously.  I searched around and found that the profile directory had 117 new files named “places.sqlite-*.corrupt” occupying 1.7GB of space.

When I restarted Firefox, no problem…weird.  I guess this sometimes happens?
