Is there any chance of getting debugging symbols there, or using gdb to figure out what those locations in the code actually are?

comment:3 Changed 4 years ago by gk

Is this still happening with the current hardened Tor Browser and even better with the one which is about to get released (

comment:4 Changed 4 years ago by nickm

gk: The version they gave is tor-, which means they have git ID a03469a, which means they're on git master as of ~yesterday. So unless you've started shipping git master, this isn't your bug. :)

comment:5 Changed 4 years ago by gk

Maybe. Hopefully. :)

Great, just what I needed. I think this is the explanation for #17752, and maybe #17659 as well.

Now, let's see about a fix....

comment:8 Changed 4 years ago by nickm

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

I think I got it maybe? #17876 was the root bug here. The commits that fix this bug are, I think:


Please let me know if this recurs.

(Checking a couple of other things before I close this.)
