------- Comment #5 from darin at apple.com  2008-02-10 13:17 PDT -------
This prohibition on click() recursion is new to Safari 3, added to prevent a
button at <http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/> from causing the browser to hang:


We decided to change our behavior to match Firefox at that time.

I have a patch that removes the prohibition and reintroduces the bug. Now we'll
have to think of another way to prevent that site from hanging. The hang is due
to the massive amount of work that ends up getting done during the infinite
recursion. I suppose that eventually we'd hit the JavaScript recursive call
limit, but in practice it's too slow and we never get there.

I'll attach my patch with test case, but we can't land it because it
re-introduces the bug fixed in r24267.
