BT from gdb for the WebProcess

Epiphany 3.22.5 and WebKit 2.15.4.

I'm running Epiphany with the dconf key:

"process-model" = "shared-secondary-process"

And the env variable:

"export G_DEBUG=fatal-warnings"

The compilation was done with CMake args:


After visiting several pages, eventually, the WebProcess hits a Warning.

This bug is not reproducible in a predictable way.

Something's gone crazy wrong here. The AtkObject* axObject is non-null, and the ATK_IS_VALUE(axObject) check passes fine, but it has no class struct somehow, which is absolutely nuts. I guess it must be memory corruption somewhere, something somewhere writing zeros to the wrong place, because I don't think there's any other way a class struct could ever be NULL.
