Package: libjavascriptcoregtk-3.0-0
Version: 2.4.7-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

Webkit browsers (midori, dwb) immediately crash on attempting to load 
the start page on the 32-bit powerpc platform.  For example:

$ dwb
Received SIGSEGV, trying to clean up.

(dwb:10914): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: invalid unclassed pointer in cast to 'GtkLabel'

(dwb:10914): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_label_set_markup: assertion 'GTK_IS_LABEL (label)' failed
$ java version "1.7.0_65"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.5.3) (7u71-2.5.3-2)
OpenJDK Zero VM (build 24.65-b04, interpreted mode)

This is a webkitgtk Big Endian bug.  There has been a recent fix 
upstream in version 2.6.0.  See:
