Description (last modified by gk)


1) Download 6.5a1-hardened
2) Download the corresponding debug files and move Debug/Browser to Browser/.debug
3) Start 6.5a1-hardened as usual and update
4) After restart the browser window is visible shortly but then Tor Browser crashes with

==7246==ERROR: AddressSanitizer: SEGV on unknown address 0x000000000000 (pc 0x7faa929b5d27 bp 0x7faa9bf89170 sp 0x7faa9bf89040 T4)
SRAT init
SRAT warning: cannot find Memory Layout File. Stack trace will be probably wrong.
==7246==AddressSanitizer: while reporting a bug found another one. Ignoring.

Starting again works and not moving the debug files into Browser + updating is fine, too.

The update from 6.0.2 to 6.0.3 and 6.5a1 to 6.5a2 is not affected. Thus, I am wondering whether this is due to selfrando coming into place. I guess #19725 would be the only thing that came to mind somehow causing this looking at the 6.5a2-hardened changelog. But then I'd suspect the update from 6.5a1 to 6.5a2 to crash as well. So, hm.
