Resolution: --- → WONTFIX
Closing because no crash reported since 12 weeks.
Reopening because crash bugs **with testcases** should not be resolved **as WONTFIX** based on queries of crash-stats.  Other resolutions may be appropriate for other reasons.

(Crash signatures are not the same as bug identity; they're merely a search aid to find and group similar crashes.  The bug may still be present, but the signature may have changed slightly, or the bug may even still be present with the same signature but there are simply no recent reports of crashes in that function.)
