Storage panel is diabled by defaut in Chromium and it may lead to exceptions in the frontend if localStorage is accessed in the inspected page and the frontend gets notified about the storage.

There is a handful of panel.storage usages overall. Why are you fixing only one?

Otherwise things crash when Storage is one of the hidden panels on the sites that use stores....
Committing to http://svn.webkit.org/repository/webkit/trunk ...
updateDOMStorage should never be called if the panel is hidden because IC will send updates only after DOM storage entries have been requested.
