[webkit-dev] Safari crash on Intel iMacs?

I use right click on links all the time on 10.4.4 and never see this,  
and I couldn't intentionally make it happen just now.  On the other  
hand I've never seen a bug like this turn out to be a hardware issue  
(they usually cause bigger failures, like panics and system lock-ups,  
or else lots of other things would be crashing besides this one  
little case).

In your bug I would be sure to include a backtrace from (run  
Console.app and look under CrashReporter logs) and a site where it  

If you are game you could even build the 10.4.4 WebKit and try to  
catch a live case of it in the debugger.
