Details

While trying to add a timeout to the xpcshell in bug 597064, I've come across the following assertion.  The parent times out ahead of the child and immediately quits, which the child sees as message that's processed in _do_main() in head.js.  Therefore, the child ends up destructing XPCShellEnvironment and its associated JS context in the middle of executing JS code.
