 > Seems to work for me on an up-to-date Win 7 system. I bookmarked 20 trac
 tickets and opened them at the same time. Everything still worked. Do you
 have more detailed steps to reproduce the crashes?

 UPD: If you're concerned about this particular bug, the news is that it
 still occurs with May updates (Win7 32-bit) and without EMET.
 STR: nothing definite. Bug was invoked by opening the timeline on Trac,
 enabling Temporarily allow all this page on High and opening a lot of
 tickets in the background. (From some moment it becomes visible that GUI
 corruption begins - this is the mark that opening a few new webpages will
 lead to the bug or STACK_OVERFLOW.)
