[webkit-dev] Crash in JSC while loading gap.com on 1.6.3

Three suggestions:

1) If you find a bug in some part of WebKit (JSC or elsewhere), you should file it on bugs.webkit.org.  webkit-dev isn't really the right venue for bug reports.

2) You should be more specific - in the bug report that you will file and not in this thread - about what port you're using.  Version "1.6.3" is ambiguous, to me.  There are a number of ports that support ARM, and it's not clear to me which you're using.  Hence, I don't even know how old "1.6.3" is, because I'm not familiar with the versioning that the different ports do.

3) Your best bet is probably to update to a newer version, and see if the bug reproduces.
