1. mousedown left button on text
2. drag down to statusbar edge to begin scroll
3. click right button
4. mouseup left button (page should keep scrolling now; on linux you may need
   to focus another window temporarily or mouse entering content will stop the
5. close tab -> crash

Reproducible approx. 1/40.
iirc can also happen when closing window rather than tab.
Present in 1.0 and trunk
Might happen on Windows too, can't remember now...

hmm, a talkback Stack trace without symbols ?
Is talkback broken ?

Matti, Doron: Can one of you reproduce this in the branch builds ? 
I have no talkback access and i have no Linux builds.
I saw this problem a few months ago for a few days.
I would request a new TB ID from a new build if I know that TB works again and I
thought i can ask you if it works again :-)

Whoopee, I'm able to reproduce this >50% in a debug build now.

 1. Open new browser window, http://www.mozilla.org/start/
 2. Open links "Tree Status", "New Checkins" to new tabs
 3. Switch to tinderbox tab
 4. Open a second window, http://www.mozilla.org/start/
 5. Electric-auto-scroll tinderbox page in first window as described in
    comment 0 steps 1-4
 6. Close old window [X]

I got illegal instruction once, but mostly good ol' segmentation fault.

assertions, bt full -- illegal instruction

The only difference between the stacks that I can parse is fullCount = 1 here
vs 0 in next, in PL_ProcessEventsBeforeID
