test case

FrameLoader::isProcessingUserGesture is used by the various parts of WebCore to
prevent scripts from doing things without input from a user, for example open a
pop-up window.  This function calls
ScriptController::processingUserGestureEvent which only considers the type of
the current event, not whether or not it was actually generated by a user
gesture.  It is possible to programatically call click() on an HTML button
element to open a popup window without an underlying user gesture, as generated
by the attached test case.
