HitTestResult::spellingToolTip() dereferences m_innerNonSharedNode which may be null. This causes the first assert in Node::document() to fail.

Patch with the automated test

Alexey suggested adding this test which is specific to the missing null check. The test that was included with the fix doesn't cover it, since the fix prevents a null m_innerNonSharedNode in that case.
