Note, only non-debug-builds crash.

hmm, this wasn't the kind of crash I thought.
I'll look at this anyway, but if someone notices immediately what is
going wrong, feel free to take this.

So mRuleNode is deleted before nsStyleContext?

Mac Trunk log from 2007-04-28

Based on the Mac branch crash log above, I don't think this is exploitable on the branch, but based on this trunk log, it could be exploitable there.

I'm also crashing in a completely different place than Martijn. Not sure if that's just Mac vs Windows. (And the branch and trunk crashes happen in different places as well but that's partially expected.)

Boris, can you take a look at this? Or who's the best person to look at it?

Mac Branch Debug log from 1.8 branch (~2007050317)

This log from a debug build suggests this might be exploitable on the 1.8 branch, so I retract my above statement.

I won't be able to look at this on a mac for a few weeks, probably...  Not sure who's best to look, to be honest.  :(

This is not a mac-only crash. (but non-debug-only maybe)
I'm really not familiar with stylecontext's memory handling, who owns what and how long. What should make sure that mRuleNode isn't deleted before stylecontext? dbaron?

My crash log from comment 8 (attachment 263681 [details]) is from a branch debug build, so I don't think this is non-debug-only.

Style contexts are refcounted, but the memory is allocated from the presshell arena.  Which means if a style context outlives its presshell, it's toast.

Rule nodes are garbage collected, basically.  Every so often we nuke all the ones that are not pointed to by any style contexts.  See the NotifyStyleContextDestroyed() call in nsStyleContext::~nsStyleContext.  Again, they shouldn't be outliving the presshell.

Which brings us back to this bug.  Patch coming up, I think.

Does this fix the crash?

At a guess, the SVG node makes us not create frames for the <tabs>, so the binding is attached when we get the node, and the constructor fires the event, which kills off the presshell, etc.

It's worth doing this on branches.  It's a very safe fix.
