Full log at <,firefox,nightly,debug,linux,,crashtest.log>, requires MozillaVPN, proper acls, etc. See me if you have questions about access.

This build was created on 2014/03/09 and probably won't match the line numbers in a current trunk build. I'm sorry but I can't run valgrind on this machine while another test framework is running. Let me know if this is a problem and I'll try to get current values in a bit.

chunk 39 of 40.

It also asserts:

Attached patch fixSplinter Review
There are two typos, the first is the cause of the Valgrind warning:
where aMetrics->maxDescent is assigned to itself (it's uninitialized
at this point).  I'm pretty sure aMetrics->emDescent was intended.

The second typo is on line 64: "aSpaceGlyph = 0". I'm pretty sure
*aSpaceGlyph was intended.

It's hard to read this code to verify that all members were indeed
assigned from members that were already initialized.  So I rewrote
it using a few local variables so that's easy to see that all members
derive their value from 'emHeight' at the top.

Yes, both fixes look correct to me (and the rewrite for clarity, thanks!)
