I am using the latest build r31738. My intention is to being able to open
the href link on the same window, instead of opening a fresh window for it.
When i click "New Window!" button available at:


I get nothing changed on screen. I see most of these functions in
FrameLoaderClientGtk.cpp are unimplemented for GTK, But their respective
counterpart functions for mac and windows architecture are implemented.

I saw a bug being logged to handle this issue.


Also applied the "Proposed patch"
http://bugs.webkit.org/attachment.cgi?id=19530&action=view  .

After applying this patch, i see that the function *
FrameLoaderClient::dispatchDecidePolicyForNewWindowAction* is still not
being called, when i click on "New Window!" button in the above mentioned

IS there a different patch available for this feature to work on the latest
builds ?
Am i missing something trivial here.
