[branch only] deadlock in ns
Observer List::Remove Observer
Possible deadlock in nsObserverList::RemoveObserver If RemoveObserver results in an observer being destroyed, then that could result in another call to RemoveObserver, which will dead-lock trying to acquire nsObserverList::mLock. This is not a bug on the trunk because mLock has been removed. The simple solution is to insert a kungFuDeathGrip.
