philor alerted me to some crashes in SMIL code on mozilla-inbound TPBL today.  So far, we haven't found any obviously-guilty pushes.

Filing this bug to investigate / discuss / resolve.

This stack is bizarre, because nsSMILTimeValueSpec::RegisterEventListener never calls GetXMLDeclaration.  In fact, GetXMLDeclaration is only called in one place (according to MXR), and that's in nsXMLContentSerializer::AppendDocumentStart, which we're nowhere near.

We're also hitting crashes in the SMIL crashtest "670313-1.svg":
REFTEST TEST-START | file:///home/cltbld/talos-slave/test/build/reftest/tests/content/smil/crashtests/670313-1.svg | 235 / 2107 (11%)
TEST-UNEXPECTED-FAIL | file:///home/cltbld/talos-slave/test/build/reftest/tests/content/smil/crashtests/670313-1.svg | Exited with code 1 during test run

...and also in the SMIL reftest "event-begin-1.svg":
REFTEST TEST-START | file:///home/cltbld/talos-slave/test/build/reftest/tests/layout/reftests/svg/smil/event/event-begin-1.svg | 6522 / 8136 (80%)

er, that URL seems to be broken - I mighta somehow messed it up.  In any case, here's another one with a failure in the same test:

Note that this crash's stack also involves a call from nsSMILTimeValueSpec::RegisterEventListener() to nsDocument::GetXMLDeclaration(), which is bizarre, as noted in comment 0, because there's no calls like that in the code AFAICT.

Comment 2

Currently, the first instances of this on TBPL are on this push:
which is a clearly-innocent tweak to mobile.js.

However, the push before that one didn't get any instances of these tests yet (at least, no Linux Mochitest-1 run, which seems to be the most common instance of this failure, for test_smilAccessKey.xhtml).  That push is:
...and that was a multi-part iframe-sandboxing push.

It's feasible that iframe-sandboxing tweaks could be involved in this bustage (particularly for mochitests, which run in an iframe).

So at this point, I'm "blaming" that push (not that its code is necessarily broken, but it at least seems to be what triggered these failures to start happening).

I can't reproduce this locally with a debug mozilla-inbound build, FWIW. (running targeted mochitests in content/smil and targeted crashtests in content/smil).

philor suggests that we might just need a clobber. Hopefully that fixes it...

Comment 5

Yup, this seems to have been FIXED by philor's clobber-triggering in

(At least, that push has multiple completed green runs on Linux for M-1, Crashtest, & Reftest, all of which were previously running up against crashes as noted above.)

Closing this out.
