[webkit-dev] WebKit and Stability

We are developing a system that uses the WebKit engine for rendering
pages to images. I've redirected the rendering (cairo on Gtk+ port) to a
image buffer that I later read and modify.
There are about 100 processes on a single system, each running the
modified WebKit. There's a main process that has an overview of all
other WebKit processes and can detect if a WebKit process crashes.

The problem now is that when stress-testing the system with around 100
WebKit processes and each simmulating a click, the processes get very
unstable. The statistics show that each WebKit process has about 50:50
chance to segfault in a period of 2 and a half hours.

So I'm asking is that a predictable/acceptable "crash-rate" if I
simmulate a mouse click every 1.5-2.5 seconds on a single WebKit
