“Is Pivotal Tracker crashing for you in Safari??”
This is a known issue but we’re having a bear of a time reproducing. We’re accepting Safari stack traces over email, with bonus points for figuring out how to send us Session cookies post-crash.
When using Passenger in spawn mode (to fork your workers), post-fork you MUST reopen any outbound sockets for things like Redis, Memcache, etc. Otherwise all your other connections will use the same socket. And you won’t notice it until oddness starts to happen when under load and processes get the wrong responses.
For some time now, Google Chrome has been happily giving stack traces when using Jasmine! Firefox has always done this. If you’re keeping score, only Safari refuses to give you stack traces in your failing Jasmine specs.
