[webkit-dev] Proper Launching Behavior for Drosera (Windows)

Hi Kevin,

I finally got everything working on my Mac, so now I have a better idea of
what to expect on the Windows side.  And I can confirm that if I launch
Safari, then launch Drosera, then send Safari to a page with some JavaScript
everything seems to come up just fine.

I've updated the Bugzilla entry with a few revisions that I use on my mac
system, as well as a change to FindSafari that emits the path info I need to
run Drosera.

This would be very cool.  I'm interested in poking through Drosera to see if
I could use a similar architecture (i.e., a WebKit-based GUI) for an
application I'm trying to port to the Mac.  So, seeing how this is done
would be pretty useful.

My pleasure -- you guys have created a pretty amazing set of tools here.
I've been playing with the WebInspector for one day, and I was already to
find the cause of some stupid formatting issues here at work.  Very useful.
