Best regards,

Based on the evidence that
1: when we backtraced the crash it was an unaligned access in libjavascriptcore (part of webkit) 2: webkit has a specific define in it's code already for whether the CPU needs aligned access 3: the aforementioned define was not previously set on sparc even though sparc is known to require aligned accesses 4: when jurij rebuilt webkit with a patch to set the aforementioned define on sparc seed built successfully 5: the earliest version of webkit/javascriptcore with which I have reproduced the issue is 1.6.1-5

I am reassigning this to libjavascriptcoregtk-3.0-0 1.6.1-5, retitling it, marking it as affecting seed and replacing the help tag with a patch tag

Webkit maintainers can you please upload Jurij's patch.
