           Summary: Returns Blank Page for all "about" protocols
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: New Bugs
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: gen at staikos.net

The function shouldLoadAsEmptyDocument() returns true for all "about" prefixed
pages (eg "about:config") pages which blocks the implementation of the about
protocol. Only "about:blank" should return true for a blank page.

I've included a patch and a log file.
