           Summary: Flash can create deadlock cases in Safari
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 419.x
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Plug-ins
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at opendarwin.org
        ReportedBy: kurt at formulateaffinity.com

I want to knote, Firefox also does this, I am sure any browser on the mac will,
since they will share the Flash plugin.

While I wait for a response on this question:
I was fiddling around trying to see why Safari stalled on flash heavy sites as

I download the demo version of Flash 8 and made a simple flash file, a repeat
loop of about 1 million times or so.  Loading this into Safari, I peg CPU
usage, and get the spinning ball for longer than I care to wait.

Eventually, the Flash PI will pop up a dialogue telling me to stop the action,
or let it continue, both buttons do the same, which is allow it to continue. 
Eventually, Safari will crash, or you have to force quit the application, and
lose data, tabs, sometimes prefs just go poof, any number of bad things.

Should a PI under any case be able to take out a browser, I kind of think not. 
During the time this is happening, of course, no other page data is loading,
which again, explains why myspace never loads certain pages.
