I just filed web bug JI-9017423 (review id).
Just after I filed it, I noticed that all crash logs I received regarding this bug share a commonality. The VM region involved in the crash refers to a mapped .mp3 file. So they all look like this:
Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGABRT)
Exception Codes: 0x000000000000000a, 0x000000018c4af000
VM Regions Near 0x18c4af000:
mapped file 000000018c428000-000000018c4a0000 [ 480K] rw-/rwx SM=COW /System/Library/Frameworks/Carbon.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/HIToolbox.framework/Versions/A/Resources/English.lproj/Localized.rsrc
--> mapped file 000000018c4a0000-000000018c4cc000 [ 176K] r--/r-x SM=PRV /Volumes/VOLUME/*/*.mp3
IOKit 000000018c4e9000-000000018c51c000 [ 204K] rw-/rw- SM=SHM
And as a matter of fact, the part of the program in which the crash occurs, does parse through a bunch of .mp3 files.
So perhaps this is not a Hotspot problem after all, but a memory mapped file problem or a combination of both.
Could someone please attach this information to the bug report?
