Please do file a bug report on this at http://bugs.webkit.org/.  I'm  
not an expert on editing support by any means, but the behaviour you  
are expecting to see from the test case sounds correct.

It is almost never correct to test for "Safari" specifically.  WebKit  
is what you should be aiming to detect.  This will ensure that your  
code functions correctly in other WebKit-based browsers, such as  
OmniWeb, Shiira, NetNewsWire, etc.

Kind regards,
