I'm sorry, I'm writing this as i'm half asleep over the keyboard right 
now (lol).

I believe there is a peice of code in there that is specific to the old 
WebKit library, which I can attempt to find and help you replace it with 
what is for the new one.  I can hopefully reply to this within a day or 
2 with what I believe is the source of the problem.

Sorry for overlooking a few lines of the email.  But keep in mind the 
original reply.  I don't like everybody going around thinking this is a 
magical fix. :)
