           Summary: BeachBall long spins, New behavior not associated with
                    increased CPU activity.
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 522+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh PowerPC
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: New Bugs
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: whunterjr at gmail.com

r25145 WebKit as well as Safari 3.0.3 versions.  / Thought the spinning beach
ball madness had disappeared, but returned after update to Safari 3.0.3 from
Apple download. Exact replication is difficult.  Seems to be most conspicuous
when using R-click (contexual menu) to open a link from a webpage in a NEW TAB.
 Ball will sometimes spin for nearly 2 minutes before Safari or WebKit are
again freed for any further action such as selecting another tab - - i.e.
anything. Odd thing in total contrast to the beachball madness of months ago =
MenuMeters does not demonstrate any unusual elevation of CPU activity - -
NONE!!!   Previously, there was a 1:1 correlation with beach ball appearance
and MAX CPU activity graph in MenuMeters for the entire time of the 'spin'.   
Uncertain as to how to document or 'prove', but suspect some conflict with
FlashPlayer in the background???    Using v. .   Not documented by
Activity Monitor, only the BeachBALLLLLL.   No crashes of OS or WebKit
associated with this, but Force Quit must oft be used to stop when time is
valuable.  Available for questions.  Thanks.
