It seems like the actions of an unload/beforeunload handler have been
"sandboxed" to prevent any http requests. This breaks a lot of web pages that
wish to track how long a page was active and what actions were taken on it.

This behavior is allowed on all versions of IE, Firefox, Netscape, Mozilla,
Opera, and all versions of Safari up to 3.0.4. It's only the launch of Safari
3.1 where this behavior became broken (or deliberately restricted).

In addition to hoping this bug gets fixed, there are a number of us web
developers that need a workaround if one is possible. Having it fixed in a
nightly build doesn't help us between now and the time of the next Safari
