Crashing Safari

If you download this:


and open it in Safari, it will cause a crash (you have been warned!). In Firefox, it works exactly as expected.

I can't work out whether I'm doing anything wrong. The problem occurs specifically doing a lot of .tagName or .nodeName accesses on an XML element (see the comment in the javascript indicating the location the crash occurs).

The report includes the following:

Exception:  EXC_BAD_ACCESS (0x0001)
Codes:      KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE (0x0002) at 0x000001b8

Thread 0 Crashed: 0 com.apple.WebCore 0x95994984 DOM::DocumentImpl::tagName(unsigned) const + 36 ...

Any ideas?
