           Summary: `window.parent.[frame].location` fails when called from
                    another frame
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 420+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Frames
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at opendarwin.org
        ReportedBy: ra5ul at comcast.net

(N.B. this is similar to bug #6281)

a safari user created a test site containing three frames, where one frame
(main.htm) sets the location of the two other frames through javascript (e.g.
window.parent.frame1.location=...).  apparently safari is the only browser that
(occasionally?) fails to display the content in these two frames.  the full
discussion is located here:


i'm guessing this is due to security restrictions, but i've verified that
firefox, camino 1.0rc1, and opera 9.0pre2 all allow this cross-frame
javascript code.  both the latest safari stable and ToT fail.

i'm attaching a slightly reduced test-case of the problem.
