           Summary: Regression: opener broken when link targets new window
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 420+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: JavaScriptCore
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at opendarwin.org
        ReportedBy: jberry at opendarwin.org

Bug #10466 fixed a problem where links that targeted new windows would not open
their content in a new window. The patch for that bug also re-coded setting of
the window opener.

But that patch seems to have broken use of the opener property. Reference to
opener in a window targeted to _blank now causes the javascript error
"undefined value". This _did_ work properly in Safari prior to the time when
bug #10466 arose, but now thta #10466 is fixed, this has been broken.

I'll try to come with a test case of some sort. For now, it's clear in my code
that it's busted.
