Applying this patch makes my Firefox immediately crash when trying to 
visit any page with a Java applet. On my F19 workstation, there is no 
terminal output at all when this happens, but Mozilla's automatic bug 
reporter does open. On my laptop running Arch, there is no bug reporter 
and nothing especially helpful is printed either, but it does tell me 
there was a segfault. On my laptop this can happen at any time, not just 
when visiting a page with an applet. I don't really know why that's 
happening the way it is, but I've never had this behaviour at all before 
applying this patch, and after the patch it's very reproducible :(
