           Summary: REGRESSION: History node not being created after
                    javascript document.location is set
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 522+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh
               URL: http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/board.html?forumId=100

forum you navigated to.

Actual Results: the General Forum loads again. 

The behavior regressed between the nightly for revision 20809 and 20814. If I
had to guess, I'd say that  the problem was probably in
