Yeah, of course it does.  We do navigation based on
HTMLAnchorElement::defaultEventHandler.  I'm not sure why I ever thought this
would work.  I guess the test case is still useful, but there is no easy way
for us to replicate FF/IE behavior here.  I think we should scratch this patch
and implement a better "window.open opens in new tab if called from a
middle-click" behavior.  However I bet that's a Safari change more than a
WebKit change.
