Description

I am getting seemlingly random crashes using commercial build 6.0.17.2000072811 
on Windows 2000. (M17/nsbeta2 branch)

I have filed talkback reports:
   TB14965111Z loaded NS6 and it went to a local file:// uri which is set [...]
   TB14965110G I loaded Netscape 6, which went to a file:// page which is [...]
   TB14964995W While happily browsing with NS6, I clicked on a link to [...]
   TB14964697Y Browsing again, edited the Location field, hit enter, CRASH.

   TB14959922X Load Netscape. [...]
   TB14959808Y Started Netscape6. [...]
   TB14959711M Start Mozilla [...]

Some of these are crashes on startup (see bug 43029, bug 39266 and bug 45358).
Others are crashes while going to a page, but those pages sometimes display
without any problems. Others are crashes after hitting the back button.

These crashes are blocking my nsbeta2 QA work.

Ian - have a look at http://cyclone/ and see if this is bug 45358.

Thanks David!

Ok, this bug is actually three other bugs, two of which are already filed.
They are bug 46269 (CStartToken::IsEmpty) and bug 45358 (crash on startup on 
Windows 2000; nsPipe::nsPipeOutputStream::WriteSegments). 

Marking dependencies.

There is also a third crasher, visible in 14964696 and 14959922, with the
following stack traces:

I have not been able to reproduce them. If I do, I'll file a bug.
