Thanks. I have done a 'svn update', rebuild it at command line, launch
it at command line. "WebKitTools/Scripts/build-webkit --debug".

And I load http://www.yahoo.com, http://www.cnn.com , it loads fine.

however, when I setup XCode to debug the same webkit code by following
"http://webkit.org/building/debug.html"m  I am able to build the
project successfully in XCode.

But when I click 'Build and Go' , Safari (I setup my custom executable
to use Application/Safari.app) is launched, but when I load
'http://www.yahoo.com', it just crashed.

And in the XCode status bar is said 'MyExecutable has exited with status 2.'

Can you please help me with my problem?

Thank you.
