> jsMath loads its plugins using XMLHttpRequest, which is working just fine to load local files on Mac and Linux.  It is failing with network errors on Windows.  I've tried from the QtWebkit Web Inspector and manually constructed and sent XMLHttpRequest objects on Mac and Windows, and they work fine on Mac to load local files, but fail on Windows.

Just for closure's sake, I'll report that this invasive and inelegant solution solves my problem for now, but is definitely not preferable.  If XMLHttpRequest began behaving the same on all platforms, that would be much better.  Is this a known bug or should I try to create an example I can submit?
