I have had MANY errors in system.log reporting a uncaught exception in WebKit.

The error looks like this:
Apr 12 18:08:40 new-host-3 Safari[30221]: * WebKit discarded an uncaught exception in the webView:identifierForInitialRequest:fromDataSource: delegate: <NSInvalidArgumentException> -[webviewmonitor entryForFrame:]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0x11702b080

These have been occurring since Apr 5, 2011 that I know of.

I keep my software up to date.
In Safari I am using the following:

AdBlock 2.3.22
Google Docs Viewer 1.2.1
Firebug Lite for Safari 1.2.0.16797
YouTube video downloader 1.1.4
Cookies 1.7.2
Glims 1.0b26
1Password 3.5.9

as well as what I think are typical plugins.

These messages are consuming many MB of disk space.
Is there any way to determine their source and correct the error (or remove or change the configuration of the culprit software)?

    Your Glims is out of date.

    as well as what I think are typical plugins.

    Which ones?

    Thank you for your response.

    I have installed Glims 1b27 - no change in behavior. (I had not received notification of this update. Perhaps because I had asked for stable releases only.)

    My Plugins are:

    Flip4Mac Windows Media Plugin 2.3.6
    Flip4Mac Windows Media Web Plugin 2.3.6
    Garmin Communicaton 2.9.3.0
    Google Earth (for google earth 5.2.1.1588)
    iPhotoPhotocast (iphoto 6)
    Java Plug-in 2 for NPAPI Browsers
    Quartz Composer
    QuickTime 7.6.6
    RealPlayer Plugin.plugin
    ShockwaveFlash 10.2.r152
    ShockwaveFlash 10.0.r45 (from ClickToFlash.webplugin)
    SilverLight Plugin 4.0.51204.0
    Switchable Java Plug-in for WebKit
    Web Kit EPPEX Contents Plugin

    Most of these plugins have been installed for at least several months. Java is the most recent update (version 13.4 from March 8, 2011).

    One "add-on" that isn't reported in the Safari plugins list or extensions preferences is rapport by Trusteer.

    I tried to eliminate other add-ons to find this problem without success. I used the system profiler to look for events that might relate chronologically with the start of this problem. I stumbled on an Apple Support discussion about rapport. It sounded similar, so I removed rapport from my system and the errors stopped.

    I don'd know if Trusteer is working on a fix, but I sent them a synopsis of this problem.

    The poster whose information was most helpful was rxcats1.

    I had the same problem, excessive errors in the System Log. I spent a couple of hours with Trusteer support this week and we traced it to the ClickToFlash Safari "add-on".

    The messages stop if ClickToFlash is disabled. However, I'm not going to give up on ClickToFlash so have uninstalled Rapport.

    Hopefully they will fix the ClickToFlash interaction problem sometime in the future.

    Precisely the same issue here, precisely the same resolution.
