I noticed this myself as well. You can't necessarily expect sites to  
always work when spoofing as another user agent. GMail in particular  
sends rather different content depending on your browser. I do seem  
to recall it working earlier though, and I am not sure if it's a  
WebKit change or a GMail site change that makes it not work at all  
now. It used to be that spoofing sort of worked and enabled the Quick  
Contacts feature.
