Re: iceweasel issues (update)

Hi Bob,

A few moons later, we've got an updated lower bound (release that

we're closing in on the problem.  All releases >= 10.0 are currently
broken on Alpha.

As far as optimization vs. no optimization, the only difference I
currently note is that the old "nsThreadUtils*" patches are required to
get a non-optimized build to succeed.  I have no explanation for this,
but without those patches, a non-optimized build will fail. To say the
least, this is bothersome...

I am fairly certain that the crash is this:


The backtraces I got all ended in madvise() --- which is what the bug report is about.

A number of a new iceweasel versions have been uploaded to unstable but they all fail to build on the buildds because we are still waiting for the fixes for:


to be applied. Thus to get a new iceweasel version I have to manually build it with the fixes and upload to the debian-ports unreleased distribution. I might be able to do that again with the latest iceweasel that is in unstable this weekend.
