Thanks Darin,

I've got my release build up now which is sufficient to do some more verification that I wanted to do.  I hadn't known about the build dashboard, that will be a handy tool for me in the future.

These all look like backtraces from assertion failures. If you are working on WebKit, the next step would be to figure out which assertion is failing.

If you’re looking for greater stability, you could try a release build instead of a debug build, which won’t include the assertions.

I’m not sure if there’s anyone actively trying to keep the WinCairo port working well. It doesn’t have a build bot on the Dashboard https://build.webkit.org/dashboard/ so I there’s no easy way for WebKit contributors to notice if platform-specific bugs are introduced.
