[webkit-dev] Early deletion of DocumentLoader instances

Hey there,

While working on the EFL port, I've noticed that sometimes a
FrameLoader's DocumentLoader ends up being deleted too early
(FrameLoader::setDocumentLoader causes the current DocumentLoader to be
deref'ed and freed), in the sense that later on Document::explicitClose
tries to access this DocumentLoader instance that has already been
freed, causing a crash.

I couldn't find any abnormal behaviour that could deref the
DocumentLoaders more than they should have been. Are there any
recommended places where I should look to check what's going on?
