Dear Leo,

Thank you for your precious information.
It works fine now!
I applied your patch with some adjustement to fit the webkit's svn rev 
124878 .
Here is in attachment.
I can see this patch is really old, do you plan to submit it to the 
webkit communauty ?
I had a look to webkit's bugzilla website but i havent been able to find 
a bug related ...

Best regards.
