couldn't reproduce the crash, so verification will not have much meaning. shutdown, can you please test in trunk and 1.8 and marked verified? thanks.
no crash with 20061009 1.8 windows/linux/mac* 1.9 windows/linux on e4x/Regress/regress-355569.js, but since I couldn't initially reproduce am not verifying.
bug 355478 has been checked into the 1.8.0 branch
