Ooh yeah, this may be STR for bug 723445!  I'll investigate.

Wow, this is a most excellent test case; thanks!  I can reproduce locally, I'll look into it hopefully tomorrow.

fix forced return

Ah, I see the bug.  The problem is that forced_return (jumped to by the debugger) is setting the stack depth to 0, but leaving pc pointing to the JSOP_CALL which the debugger interrupted.  Thus, when the ScriptDebugEpilogue runs, js_ReconstructStackDepth(pc) is not equal to the actual stack depth and we go touching invalid memory (the next frame).

Thank you again Attila for taking the time to create a reproducible test-case.  It was certainly invaluable!  We've been trying to track down reports of this crash for a while and between this and bug 723445, I bet we have it fixed.

I forgot, I'll make a shell test-case tomorrow.

fix forced return

This patch adds a shell testcase.  In finding a testcase, I can see why this was relatively hard to hit: you have to trap on a 'call' instruction, force an early return, then, in the leave-frame hook for that function, you need to runs some code that inspects the stack via StackIter.  Phew.
