Needinfo from fitzgen based on comment 1.
Flags: needinfo?(nfitzgerald)
Huh. It isn't immediately clear what is going on here.

We GC under creating the SavedFrame prototype.

Which is under capturing a SavedFrame stack.

Which is under js::ErrorToException for me locally and ReportError in the stack in comment 0.

Somehow this messes up some invariant in the code for sweeping breakpoints. This is where I get lost -- I'm not really sure what the invariant this assertion is trying to maintain is, or why it is so.
Flags: needinfo?(nfitzgerald)
:nbp, you added the assertion that is failing. Can you help explain why it is there and perhaps what might be going wrong for it to fail?

Forwarding ni? to the original author of the assertion.

This assertion is saying that breakpoints must always be swept in the same zone group as their debugger.

However, I don't think this takes account of breakpoints that are added during incremental sweeping, after we have computed the zone groups.

Created attachment 8594825 [details] [diff] [review]

Update the assertion and add a comment explaining it.

Remove an assertion that can never fail.

I think this needs a comma after the introductory prepositional phrase ending in sweeping. Unless I'm reading it wrong.

I'd split this into a second sentence for readability. Something like "zone groups. In this case, both script and ...."
