Thanks @bhrgunatha for reporting this. Patch added and version bumped.
Who doesn't have a Nvidia card, can ignore this update.

I had an issue with the newer nvidia drivers causing crashes.
See - https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1741704#p1741704

I bumped the pkgrel and added the patch mentioned in that post to install locally and haven't had any further crashes.

@jarerod thanks. This happens when it's too late at night. Fixed. Please, refresh your sources.

@Blaiz0r thanks for reporting. I made some changes and had to add a patch to workaround the build. Please, try and report back.

Failed to build this today:

Error running mach:

['build']

The error occurred in code that was called by the mach command. This is either
a bug in the called code itself or in the way that mach is calling it.

You should consider filing a bug for this issue.

If filing a bug, please include the full output of mach, including this error
message.

The details of the failure are as follows:

I was able to debug myself through the code of the crashing site that I originally encountered and produce a minimal example that reliably crashes the current tab for me: [1]

@figue: Could you please verify that this also crashes for you? I will then go ahead and report the bug.

New release to fix crashreporter build.

figue commented on 2017-08-28 15:30

Ok just forgot to remove !strip. I'll check release 4 again without it. Still bigger, but better now.

figue commented on 2017-08-27 21:17

Ok. Do it please...

I understand the huge file, but I don't know why without building symbols is huge too...
