Since webkitgtk 2.11.1 hls streaming on http://twitch.tv/ crashes the tab in epiphany a few seconds in (it does stream for a short bit). This used to work fine in 2.10 . Tested 2.11.2 as well. Same crash for other HLS streams I can find on the web.
Webkit built from scratch on Gentoo with llvm 3.7, however not a debug build (given the build time requirements).
Which GStreamer version? Since you're on Gentoo I suppose you built 1.6.1 at least, right?
All my installed gstreamer components are at 1.6.1 currently, that is correct.
The HLS streaming has been working for a long time already, so I am positive it also worked with the gstreamer 1.4 series and webkitgtk 2.10 . Possibly even before that, but I can't quite remember/be sure.
I'm also quite sure wk 2.10 in combination with gst 1.6 works, but can downgrade to be completely certain. It will however take a while building.

I think I've seen similar messages in some layout tests...
Bug 144040 is related then, possibly a duplicate. I'll check what's going on.
Can someone get the URL to the actual HLS stream? That would allow debugging this without all of webkit around it... if the problem also appears there :)
Maybe easier to just grab a less confusing HLS example page. Here 2 pages that crash in the same way, but a lot easier to read their source.
As an added note, the commandline output posted earlier (#3) all appears before the stream starts to play, so before the crash.
