This happens when the large blank rectangle in the test is changed to something with a border. This causes us to switch from a plain layer with a color background to a tiled layer.

When the switch from flat to tiled layers is made, the old "background color" layer is destroyed. However, a pointer to this destroyed layer is left in the parent containing layer.

Later, when we switch to using a tiling layer, we attempt to grab the sublayers of the "flat" layer we are replacing.  Unfortunately, the sole sublayer is a dangling pointer to our "destroyed" "background color" layer.  When we attempt to dereference this NULL pointer we get a crash.

The solution proposed in this bug is to remove the layer from its superlayer during the destruction process.

We could also add null-pointer checking in the PlatformCALayerWinInternall::getSublayers method, but removing the sublayer prevents the corrupt entry from being present.
