An image is requested from the onunload handler, but the img request never gets
to the (src=) server. Onunload img loading behaviour is different depending on
wether the page gets closed, you're navigating away, or the onunload handler
gets called as a function (). The same code that fails in Safari, works fine in
FF and Opera, etc. The idea is to track when a user leaves a page. Looks like
if the same thing happens when the request if for a <script> instead of an
<img>. See the complete description of the problem in comp.lang.javascript
thread "unload event more restrictive now on Safari 3.1". Thanks, Jorge.
