During backup of a PKCS#12 certificate, Mozilla Firefox crashes with an unhandled exception. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Preconditions:
1. Install Firefox
2. Install Infineon TPM Professional Package 3.0 (includes PKCS#11 provider)
3. Add PKCS#11 provider to Firefox (Tools->Options->Advanced->Encryption->Security Devices) 
4. Request a certificate using PKCS#11 provider and install the certificate.

Steps to reproduce: 
1. Start Firefox.
2. Click Tools->Options->Advanced->Encryption->View Certificates.
3. Firefox' "Password required" dialog pops up for the PKCS#11 provider. Click "Cancel". 
4. Firefox "Certificate manager" dialog pops up. Select certificate from PKCS#11 provider and click "Backup".
5. Choose filename. Click "Save".
6. Choose a certificate backup password. Click "OK".
7. Password dialog from PKCS#11 provider pops up. Click "Cancel".
8. Firefox crashes with an unhandled exception. 

Actual Results:

Stefan, can this still be reproduced?

this is probably nsPKCS12Blob::~nsPKCS12Blob().
only a handful per month.

an example from FF 3.5.5 bp-096d9d2f-40e3-4ac3-9f6a-1ed642091216

I still want to figure out a testcase that exercises the exact issue in this bug, but in the meantime I thought I'd ask for an initial review.

Looks pretty good already. A couple nits.
Clearing r? while waiting for a test.

All other functions have argument names.

Maybe add a comment that `length == 2` implies that the password is empty and contains only the null terminator.

`|| !rawPRFile`?

Moving this one up would safe you computing `wideLength*2` twice.

I'd probably initialise this to false just to be safe.

`SECITEM_AllocItem` uses `PORT_ZAlloc` so this shouldn't be necessary. But I'm fine with keeping it if you want to protect against changes in `SECITEM_AllocItem`.

Maybe assert that `file` isn't null.

Yeah, no kidding :(

Good call.

It looks like it calls PORT_ZAlloc to allocate the SECItem itself if necessary, but the data gets allocated with PORT_Alloc here, so I think we do need it.

Given that most people don't have a master password wouldn't it be nice to have an export test without master password as well?

Heh - good catch.
