I have seen these failures in Try pushes for bug 1134039, but now they've gone away and I get clean try pushes.

I'm filing this bug so that I can be notified if they were not actually resolved, and to allow others to just star the failure and move on with their lives. If it doesn't come up any more, I'll close the bug.
I think the problem is that Debugger::translateGCStatistics() makes use of the runtime's GC statistics object but can also trigger a GC which will mutate that object.
Since this is happening fairly often I think we should fix this the easy way first: by suppressing GC in Debugger::translateGCStatistics().

I think a better fix would be to separate out the Statistics object into an object that holds the statistics and the object that produces them.  We can allocate a new data object at the start of GC and then detach it from the producer and pass it to Debugger::onGarbageCollection() in endGC() before deleting it.  As long as the stats object is not held in some global location when the debugger hook runs this situation will not arise.

This seems fine for a spot fix for the intermittent orange. I agree with the longer term direction too, though it gets a little weird because each GC slice gets a new fallible allocation. But that's no worse than what we're doing already, with the 'aborted' flag.
