For about a week, Nightly crashes in a new way at every update. This new crash provokes the OS's "Problem Report" dialog, with this data:

Nightly's own fault/crash detector doesn't seem to catch this crash and, in fact, no crashes appear under about:crash since March 30.

Quitting Nightly sometimes provokes this crash, too -- I think.
