Just when I want to crash in order to test something, I can't get Interface to crash!
What's a good programmatic way of intentionally causing Interface to crash?

A: Allocating heaps of memory.

when I want to purposefully crash I dereference NULL -- I'm guessing it crashes faster than allocating heaps of memory

@ctrlaltdavid found the following errors while I ran it in debug mode:
ERROR: Font maps SPACE and ZERO WIDTH SPACE to the same glyph. Glyph width will not be overridden.
platform\graphics\SimpleFontData.cpp(146) : WebCore::SimpleFontData::platformGlyphInit
ERROR: Font maps SPACE and ZERO WIDTH SPACE to the same glyph. Glyph width will not be overridden.
platform\graphics\SimpleFontData.cpp(146) : WebCore::SimpleFontData::platformGlyphInit
not sure if its relevant
