That test is kinda tricky. The change isn't necessarily wrong. But
the patch appears to have changed what the DOM tree looks like (at
least in order) and thus exposed bugs in our JS bindings where some
objects aren't being created with the proper prototype chains.
Our JS bindings get cached after first access, so the order in which
they're accessed can change what code path is used to create them and
expose bugs like this where PASS messages turn into FAILs because the
binding was not created with the right global object pointer.
