           Summary: [GTK] Plugin process crashes when loading totem plugin
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Unspecified
        OS/Version: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: Gtk
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit2
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: cgarcia at igalia.com

The problem is that totem plugin uses functions NPN_Foo, that are defined inside totem as wrappers for NPNetscapeFuncs. Those functions are also defined in WebCore (npapi.cpp), and it seems the plugin process ends up calling the WebCore ones, and crashes because the NPNetscapeFuncs in WebCore are not initialized (and conflicts with the ones defined in Source/WebKit2/WebProcess/Plugins/Netscape/NetscapeBrowserFuncs.cpp which are passed to the plugin in NP_Initialize). 
Most of the plugins functions in WebCore are actually only used WebKit1, so I think we shouldn't build some of those files in WebKit2. Maybe we can split WebCore more and add WebCorePlugins library, for example.
