           Summary: WebKit nightly crashes on launch
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 420+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh PowerPC
               URL: http://www.webkit.org
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Blocker
          Priority: P2
         Component: Page Loading
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: llscotts at fastmail.fm

About a month ago, the nightly builds incorporated a code change that caused
WebKit to crash on launch.  Being a lazy bum, I went back to the October 25
build, which still works fine.  I had been updating WebKit daily (or more
often) prior to that time, and I hoped the WebKit builds would work through
whatever bug was bringing it down without a report from me.  No such luck.  I
downloaded the latest nightly just now, and it crashed before the WebKit home
page ever got around to loading.  Whatever the problem is, it doesn't affect
Safari, WebKit prior to October 26, or Safari 3.0 as of the latest Leopard
build (November 9).
As usual, I suspect an InputManager problem, but I'm not really willing to live
without any of the following Safari plugins that I use, none of which use SIMBL
as I've installed them:
 - SafariStand
 - SafariTidy
 - Creammonkey
 - SafariBlock
 - Inquisitor

I also have SurfRabbit installed, but I'm removing that and will test WebKit
without it.  There are other InputManagers I use that aren't specifically for
Safari, but which add value to my entire library of Cocoa apps.   It's probably
best to start by evaluating the above list, however.  I'll try to find time to
test these out as well, but in the meantime I wanted to get the bug recorded,
since it means I can't use the WebKit nightlies anymore.
