           Summary: /=/ weirdness (equal sign in regexp needs to be escaped)
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 526+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: New Bugs

        ReportedBy: will_wk at hamstersoup.com

The regexp /=/ behaves very strangely unless you escape the equals sign.
Firefox does not require the escape.

/=/.toString()  --> "//"   BUG?
/=/.test('=')   --> true   ok
'='.match(/=/)  --> [""]   BUG?
'='.match(/\=/) --> ["="]  ok 

/=/.toString()  --> "/=/"  OK
/=/.test('=')   --> true   OK
'='.match(/=/)  --> ["="]  OK   
'='.match(/\=/) --> ["="]  OK
