Unfortunately you didn't take Geoff's advice and caused hundreds crashes on Qt bot. Because of this I had to roll out: http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/86482

Reopen to fix it. I'll attach a crash log to help debugging.

Thanks for the snarky comment.

Crash log doesn't help because it's stripped of real symbol information.  We've had this problem with Qt before.  The build bots cannot strip symbols.
Comment 10 Oliver Hunt 2011-05-14 10:30:42 PDT
I'll be relanding this shortly on the assumption that the qt bot failures are due to errors in qt code rather than errors in the patch itself.  Given this patch had one purpose (find errors in code using jsc) the response to many errors should have been to determine what the errors were, not roll out the patch that identified them.
Comment 11 Oliver Hunt 2011-05-14 10:35:59 PDT
Lo and behold it _is_ an error in qt.

~QtRuntimeMethod removes itself from the QtInstance method cache during it's destructor, which is a point at which it is no longer guaranteed to be a valid object.

QtRuntimeMethod should use a finalizer to remove itself from the map not its destructor.

We actually need this patch in as we're seeing crashes due to gc bugs that this will expose.  Happily I've put up a patch at https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60841 that should fix the issue.  Currently waiting on the EWS to tell me how to make it build properly.
