Description Christian Holler (:decoder) 2012-01-19 18:23:26 PST
The following test asserts/crashes on mozilla-central revision e5e66f40c35b (32 bit, options -m -n -a):

function subset(list, size) {
  if (size == 0 || !list.length)
    return [list.slice(0, 0)];
  var result = [];
  for (var i = 0, n = list.length; i < n; i++) {
    var pick = list.slice(i, i+1);
    var rest = list.slice(0, i).concat(list.slice(i+1));
    for each (var x in subset(rest, size-1))
  return result;
var bops = [
  ["=", "|=", "^=", "&=", "<<=", ">>=", ">>>=", "+=", "-=", "*=", "/=", "%="],
var aops = [];
for (var i = 0; i < bops.length; i++) {
  for (var j = 0; j < bops[i].length; j++) {
    var k = bops[i][j];
for (i = 2; i < 5; i++) {
  var sets = subset(aops, i);

Furthermore, the shell crashes with a use-after-gc when stepping through the assert:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Comment 1 Brian Hackett (:bhackett) 2012-01-20 10:21:57 PST
Created attachment 590243 [details] [diff] [review]

Regression from bug 713754, ids are converted to strings now (maybe triggering GC) when constructing native iterators but are not rooted until the native iterator is attached to an object afterwards.

Slow gc test, skipping for test suite.
