#10434 needs_information defect

Segmentation fault when Tor Browser 3.5 has a ton of state.

Description

To reproduce this bug, spend all day on Twitter clicking a bunch of links and never get a new identity. This is the only way I have been able to consistently get enough state in my browser to trigger the crash. I have a core file, but I would prefer to send it to interested developers over PGP because I have no idea how much information it contains. This is the TBB version I used: https://lists.torproject.org/pipermail/tor-qa/2013-December/000283.html

Is this happening on 32bit or 64bit Linux?

32bit. Haven't tested with 64bit.

May or may not be related to #10533. A lot of the links I click on come from Twitter.

mttp: Is this still happening with the latest bundle? If so, the good news is we have debug symbols again and it would be nice if you could produce a stacktrace. (https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorBrowser/Hacking#DebuggingtheTorBrowser might help)

Another one segfault on the same version #10727. It might be already fixed in newer versions by removing disk leaks.
