           Summary: Middle click should not fire onclick event
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 522+ (nightly)
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://bugs.blaut.biz/webkit/onclick-issue.htm
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML DOM
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: listy at blaut.biz

I've noticed that Safari is the only browser I've tested which fire onclick
event after using middle click (wheel button) to load a link on a new tab. This
is very frustrating behaviour, not visible in other popular browsers on Windows
(Internet Explorer 7, Firefox 2 and Opera 9).

Steps to reproduce:

1. Go to a page: http://bugs.blaut.biz/webkit/onclick-issue.htm
2. Middle click on the only link on the page.

Expected result:

Safari should open a new tab and load a page http://webkit.org. The tab with
the clicked link should not load webkit.org site.

Current result:

Safari loads on a new tab a page http://webkit.org and also load a page
webkit.org on the tab with the clicked link.
