in comment https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=557715#c9 Ted says that the test is failing due to a lack of Crash Reporting on Snow Leopard which prevents a stack trace from being found.

I hid this column on tinderbox, since there isn't much point in having a permanently orange (if it was intermittent in staging, it doesn't show any sign of intermittence in production, where it failed 11 of 11 times) column that we can't gather any information from to do anything about it.
I could totally understand trace-malloc being totally broken on 64-bit Mac OS X, which I have a trivial patch for; that might fix this.
Said trivial patch is landed:
http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/0b85f374e623
It's now fixed.

The build went red due to the leak log comparisons not having a baseline, but that should go away next cycle.

It was also apparently red due to "checking clobber times failed".  We'll see if that goes away.
