John Sullivan changed WebKit so that the PDF menus can be customized  
using the context menu delegate, just as other menus can be.

At the same time he made some changes to Safari.

I think the older Safari has some buggy behavior with the newer  
WebKit. If you file a bug, John can consider whether there's a way to  
refine this so it will behave better with old versions of Safari (and  
thus possibly better with other WebKit applications).
