[webkit-help] Javascript problem when running on WebKit+Cairo+Win32

Sorry to bother,

I have built the WebKit+Cairo with "--release" on WinXP 32-bit. The
build was successful with no error or warning.
Then I opened the generated WinLauncher.exe. It gives me a neat web browser.

But when I try to open a webpage with javascript using the generated
browser. I found several problems:

1. When I right click on a URL address on the webpage and select "Open
Link in New Window", nothing happened. It should open a new window and
display the URL.

2. It seems: "  alert("....")  " in javascript is not supported. A
simple line as " alert("say hi"); "  will not pop up any alert window;

3. The SQLite database support. The line " db =
openDatabase("NoteTest", "1.0", "HTML5 Database API example", 200000);
" will get no response;

I have attached a simple html file code as above. It runs well on
Safari, but not on Webkit/cairo. It's weird....

Thank you very much in advance!


--------------the above is the source code of a html file----------

<!doctype html>
<TITLE>Test Input</TITLE>

var db = null;

function createDB (form){

    alert ("job is start!");

    form.alertbox.value = "start create DB";
    db = openDatabase("NoteTest", "1.0", "HTML5 Database API example", 200000);

	alert ("job is done!");
    form.alertbox.value = "end create DB";

<FORM NAME="myform" ACTION="" METHOD="GET">Testing <BR>
What do want to print out:
<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="alertbox" VALUE=""><P>
<INPUT TYPE="button" NAME="createDBButton" Value="Create DB"
