Description Michael Graham 2007-12-05 05:33:25 PST
I have just build webkit with gtk and debug and an assertion fails on startup


I attached to the process and I can see what is going on (fixing is a whole other ball game!)

* dispatchDidCommitLoad is called and m_didDispatchDidCommitLoad is set true
* checkLoadCompleteForThisFrame is called and we return early because m_creatingInitialEmptyDocument==true
* dispatchDidCommitLoad is called and the assertion fails

The assertion added in r28399 is causing this issue.

I'm not seeing this with a local debug build of WebKit r28434 on Mac OS X 10.4.11 (8S165).

The reports of this issue I've seen have been in the GTK+, suggesting that either the assertion is identifying something we're doing wrong in the port, or the assertion is too strict and needs to be removed.

 	5	        - added an assertion for a situation that leads to a Safari assertion: 
 	6	          a commit that is not followed by a load completion 


Sounds like this may be a bug we need to fix in the GTK+ port rather than just removing the assertion and moving on.

Darin, Kevin, any thoughts?
