[webkit-dev] WebKit build doesn't load plug-in for application/pdf

I'm trying to debug a problem with my WebKit plug-in that I think is
related to the way WebViews layout on draw. Debugging with the
WebKit sources seemed like the obvious choice...
...but when I debug from the DebugWebKit project and load a PDFA, it
doesn't use the PDF-handling WebKit plug-in. Instead, it shows a
small blue question-mark in the top left corner.
Selecting the "IMG"P:
Node Type: Element
Node Name: IMG
style = '-webkit-user-select: none"
src = "http://server-name/path-to-pdf"
Running Safari on this same machine (without the default system
WebKit) works -- the plug-in is invoked.
... is this a known issue with building and debugging WebKit? The
breakpoints for loading the plug-ins is hit, I can show "Help-
>Installed plug-ins" and it shows the PDF plug-in ... it just
doesn't load it.
Neither -[WebPluginDatabase pluginForMIMEType:] nor -
[WebPluginDatabase pluginForExtension:] are called when I load the PDF.
I'm still debugging, but is this another case of the low-level
imaging code deciding that it can handle application/pdf and so not
bothering to check plug-ins? (See bugzilla bug 10015)
