           Summary: Can't javascript close window following iframe post
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 522+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Critical
          Priority: P2
         Component: JavaScriptCore
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: james at jberry.us

Normally, one can use javascript to close a window as long as the window was
opened by following a link. But in Safari (and all WebKit versions to date)
this fails after a get or post operation that targets an iframe within the

Note that this is an important operation, as it would be used in an image
upload window, for instance, where the post through the hidden iframe is used
to submit an image.

This same operation succeeds in FireFox, IE6, and IE7.

Attached is a simple html file page that will allow you to reproduce the issue.
