It's not crashing or getting killed due to OOM, because I'd see that in the journal. It's (probably) silently not able to launch new WebProcesses, because of resource limitation. I have no way to know which resource is missing because I have no way to make WebKit spit out information about this failure.

It's not a crash or a hang. If it were a hang, I don't know how I'd identify which one of the processes was associated with the the tab in question.
