Bug 587982 got rid of CRT assert dialogs in the browser, but that change was never carried over to xpcshell so that simple failures like failed memory allocation leads to test timeouts in debug builds.

My straight-forward attempt of using the same approach as bug 587982 successfully added the hooks, but hung afterwards below crashreporter code:

Moving the need-info request over here :)

I have no idea what the hell is going on in this stack. The only thing I note is that it's going through our patched LdrLoadDll, so maybe this is related to bug 830001?

Can I please see a patch plus the stack trace from all threads when the hang happens?

Sorry, coming up now - i was in a hurry when breaking this out.
Attached patch test-caseSplinter Review
Test-case, add an xpcshell-test that allocates |0x7fffffff * 3| bytes (will be fixed by bug 813245).
Attached patch Add report hooksSplinter Review
Straight-forward adoption of the report-hooks.

Hmm, I would just call OutputDebugString and not bother with libc in MSCRTReportHook.  It seems like there's some allocator locks being held on the stack, so avoiding allocations in the hook might in fact solve this.
