           Summary: Replace abort() with CRASH()
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Web Template Framework
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: ap at webkit.org

Using abort() for fatal failures is bad for at least two reasons:
1) We don't get a crash log.
2) It's impolite to silently close an application on failure, as if it was
never running.

We already use CRASH everywhere, except for FastMalloc and one place in

We could consider taking measures against using abort (or just define it to
CRASH), but I'm not sure how much that would help in practice.
