Bug#651636: libwebkitgtk-1.0-0: GtkLauncher crashes while browsing websites

Package: libwebkitgtk-1.0-0
Version: 1.6.1-5+b1
Severity: important

Midori frequently and randomly crashes after 5 or 10 minutes I'm using it.
It's not about a specific website.

Running 'gdb midori' I realized that the segfault was in libwebkitgtk-1.0-0
So I run /usr/lib/webkitgtk-1.0-0/libexec/GtkLauncher and I got a segfault.
Unfortunately, if I type 'gdb /usr/lib/webkitgtk-1.0-0/libexec/GtkLauncher'
and then 'run', the command hangs forever (I have installed debug symbols):

#### Terminal output ####

I don't know how to provide more information.

Please note that I'm using a netbook with MIPS processor.
I don't have such a problem when using a laptop (same debian version).
