I thought about it, but I'm afraid it's not that easy to write a cross platform layout test for this. We would need a test with a NPAPI plugin running that produces a main resource load error before the load is committed. For soup based ports we could indeed use an infinite redirection to trigger too many redirections error, but I don't know if that would work in mac too. I tried with a GTK+ specific unit test and I was unable to reproduce the crash. And I can't share the website in which the crash is always reproducible :-( In any case, I can try to write a layout test for this if someone has an idea of how to reproduce this, and helps me a bit.
