case anyone has seen something like this before and I will try to get in touch 
with some of the users who have managed to crash. Pls. reassign to the right

This signature isn't showing up in Trunk or N620. M095 has a single Talkback
entry with no comment. Marking WFM. I will reopen if we get more (meaningful) data.

Moving to mozilla0.9.9 because none of this data helps me at all.

Claudius, can you spend some time to try and reproduce this one?

my talkback query skills evidently aren't as good as my bugzilla query skills.
I'm getting nothing for this stack sig. Jan or Jay, can someone tell me what
recent build ID's have shown crashes with this same sig? (before I go off trying
to repro?)

Claudius, The latest crshes with this signature happen on the M096 release 
(Incidents 38394310, 38393485). We don't have any Trunk crashes for this one at 
the moment but since we only have 16 mac incidents on the Trunk in today's data 
that isn't surprising.

User comments

The past ten days of data return 215 incidents on N621, 13 on M098 and 1 on the
Trunk. It needs a fix but we still need a solid repro case.
Attaching user comments.

Could this be related to the Yahoo Games crasher, which occurs when Java games
are accessed? If so, Sun and Yahoo are working on that.

I've been having Mac problems all week so I just got to this but I'm unable to
generate a crash. That of course doesn't mean much as we do have data that says
it's a problem. I'm just saying that no combination of QA artistry and wizardry
has enabled me to repro this bug (2002022808 Mac Classic builds).

Updating summary with N621 and M098 per Tom's comment #15.  Adding Trunk since
this crash is also still around on the MozillaTrunk.  Here are a couple of
recent incidents:

The stacks still aren't very helpful, but at least we know we're still crashing.
   Still need a solid testcase though.

I don't understand.  How can this be topcrash if you say "...but I'm also going
to mark this topcrash- since there just aren't a lot of these crashes (about
1.5% of all Mac crashes are of this type"?

Lisa:  The reason we came up with the topcrash+ and topcrash- system is to
ensure that we never have to remove the topcrash keyword from the summary. 
Although this might not be a "topcrash" anymore...we still need to keep track of
it because this  *was* at some point a major problem and therefore has the
potential be a problem again (unless of course we get it fixed or mark it
worksforme).  For now...this is not a crash we feel is critical (or else it
would be marked topcrash+).  

Comment 24

I'm going to close this bug out as worksforme.  There are too many differenct
kinds of crashes being reported under this stack signature and we have not been
able to find a single testcase to reproduce this at will.  This might just be a
generic stack signature for all types of crashes with MacOS...so I don't see
this bug going anywhere.

If anyone does see this stack signature in Talkback data, please try to
reproduce it first and then log a new bug for your particular task or testcase
that is causing a crash.  Thanks.
