logcat of geo crash

When trying to accept geolocation permissions, browser App will crash and restart. 

logcat attached, but not sure if its helpful.  Also, bug 774580 may be related, and unsure if the patch there will fix this problem.

-07-25-2012 daily build
- gaia commit: 578593de74dd70a0aa6c3d4a5f652d739e342694
- gecko commit: 3632e0895ae248b818dd50317534b4cb4cdc934a

1) install daily on otoro
2) launch browser App, and go to URL
3) click YES on the geolocation doorhanger
4) wait a bit, and verify the browser app will crash and restart to lockscreen

- hitting yes to Geolocation should not crash the browser, and instead load the page 

- crash and restart lockscreen
