BT from gdb

I'm using WebKitGtk+ with my own JHBuild setting:

Epiphany 3.20.3 and WebKit 2.13.4 with one additional patch.

I'm running Epiphany with the dconf key:

"process-model" = "shared-secondary-process"

The compilation was done with CMake args:


After visiting several pages, eventually, the whole desktop hangs, presumably, because of the WebProcess

The kernel keeps being responsive and the "ping" command, more or less, responds but, for example, I'm unable to ssh in from another machine.

After suffering the same problem several times, I was able to get a BT by launching ephy and the webprocess from SSHed session and attaching gdb. While the desktop being completely stalled, still I was able to make reach a Ctrl+C in the GDB of the WebProcess. That made the machine responsive again but my X session was completely torn down.

This bug is not reproducible in a predictable way.
