After a restart certain nested framesets are not properly rendered.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start FF with no profile.
2. Close all but last tab, 
4. Load in the first (and only tab) the testcase URL.
5. open two (2) additional tabs and load in them the testcase URL.
6. close FF. Press "Save and Quit"
7. start FF.
Actual Results:  
The second and the third tab each show a blank right frame.
Only the first tab contains the properly rendered content.

Expected Results:  
Every tab's content is properly rendered.

summary: Bug 588643 - Crash in [@ nsDocShell::SetHistoryEntry ], r=bent/neil, a=blocking

If you disable mChildren.SetCount(aOffset); in nsSHEntry.cpp the error vanished. Unfortunately there is no testcase in Bug 588643.

2. If you (idependently from 1.) set both browser.cache.disk.enable and browser.cache.memory.enable to false the error vanished, too.
While the given URL seems to give strictly reproducible result here is another URL which does sometimes not: (You may have to open more frames).

I could not
yet prepare an "isolated" testcase.
another URL:
none of the three pages renders correctly after restart.
