           Summary: REGRESSION: [view goToBackForwardItem:[[view
                    backForwardList] currentItem]] is broken
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Page Loading
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: beidson at apple.com

The following previously working code is broken:
WebView* view = */ some view /*;
[view goToBackForwardItem:[[view backForwardList] currentItem]];

Telling a Page/FrameLoader to go to the same HistoryItem that is its current
HistoryItem is supposed to effectively reload the page. creating a new load and
new document.

With the changes to FrameLoader for state objects and certain hash navigations
be "same document" navigations, this API started acting as a "same document

One concrete example of where this breaks Safari is in the anti-phishing
warning, where you can no longer "ignore" an anti-phishing alert. 
"http://aboutbillgates.com" is a current example of a site google has flagged
as malware and can be used to test this breakage.

The WebCore fix is easy, a layout test requires an API specific addition, and a
patch is on its way.
