Backgrounding MobileSafari with open WebSocket connections can cause crash
06-Feb-2012 11:51 AM Andy Buckingham:
When backgrounding Mobile Safari once a web page has opened a WebSocket connection, when returning to Mobile Safari after the socket has likely timed out and been closed MobileSafari will crash.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a web page that establishes a web socket connection.
2. Press Home to background the app.
3. Wait for the remote end to disconnect due to inactivity.
4. Re-open Mobile Safari.
The page would reconnect and gracefully handle the disconnection.
Mobile Safari crashes.
