Nobody sent me a solution... but I found one yesterday, by chance.

My .mime-types and .mailcap happened to contain the following lines 
(respectively) :

#mime types added by Netscape Helper
text/css css \ \
type=text/css  \
#--Netscape Communications Corporation MIME Information
#Do not delete the above line. It is used to identify the file type.
desc="CSS Text"  \

#mailcap entry added by Netscape Helper

I just removed them, and all is working fine now. I can read web pages 
with CSS linked to them without crashing N4.5 . 
Strange enough : I noticed these entries in the preferences widgets of 
N4.5, one month ago, and removed them at this level, but it seems it 
did not work.

If this may help s.o.
