Did you work out a better solution for this in the end?
I'm getting an occasional Geary crash from a bug in WebKit1 that was
understandably marked won't-fix, but it was pointed out that using such
an old, unsupported version of WebKit is something of a security
problem. So moving Geary to WebKit2 seems like a reasonably good idea,
but is obviously going to encounter the same issue you did.
Here's hoping. :)
