We've got a reproducible player crash whenever someone exits the Unity3d window (embedded in a browser) on an application we are developing.
Unfortunately, "reproducible" seems to be "reproducible everywhere but at Unity's offices" [we've confirmed it on all 40 PCs in our office, and 15+ elsewhere - with a wide mix of hardware.] and we're gauging it unlikely that the issue will be resolved by our launch date; so we need to tackle it ourselves.
With that out of the way in advance - does anyone here have any experience or has any tips for diagnosing what might be causing the Unity web player to crash? We're fairly certain it is scripting related (e.g; the following is a debug crash from Unity) - but we're unable to find exactly what.
The one bit of advice we did get from Unity was that some resources (possibly network) may not be being released before exit; and we should add the release functions into another specific method - which we tried without success; so any suggestions or tips on what we should try would be very much appreciated!
EDIT: This might be related to these issues:

As Lucas stated, if you post the case number here, we (Unity employees) can have a look at the bug report. But that aside if you have some deadline, and need to work around the crash, and cannot wait for a fix, what I would do is to first look at the webplayer log file for anything suspicious. If there's any error messages or exceptions logged, that may give you a clue on where to start looking.
If that doesn't show anything relevant, I'd start binary searching the project for what is causing it:
Make a copy of the project folder, and start removing stuff from that. Does it happen for any scene? If it is, start removing game objects from the scenes. If you found something which causes the crash, re-add it, and check all child game objects and components. It may be hard work, but you'll probably be able to find out which script is causing the issue. Then, remove code from that script, until you find the responsible line(s). Now, you should be able to find some workaround. When you got here, it would also be really nice to add your findings to the bug report to make fixing the issue easier for us.
