Hi Zaheer,

I went ahead and filed https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=22489  
which represents the radar you referenced.

What we saw happening is that you'd get didFinishLoading followed by  
didFail it's because the SubresourceLoader is getting the main  
resource of a server-provided 404 page, and *then* getting the error  
callback because it was a 404.

In your test case where you're trying to download the icon, is this  
what's happening?
