           Summary: CollegeHumor pages cause several hundred redundant ad
                    loads
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh Intel
               URL: http://www.collegehumor.com/article:1801971
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.6
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: New Bugs
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: jon at jonshier.com


I don't have nearly the experience needed to figure out the cause for this one,
but I hope my description will help others. 

When loading a collegehumor.com article (not the front page), ToT goes into an
extremely long loop most of the time. It loads the same 5 files repeatedly,
sometimes several hundred times. I have had the process repeat until there were
over a thousand "items" in the page, as Safari puts it. Now, this perhaps
wouldn't be so bad but the page doesn't render until the very last item is
loaded, which can take several minutes (this is when the load event fires). 

I do not encounter this issue with Safari 4.0.4 or FireFox 3.6. My machine is a
27" iMac i7 with 8GB of RAM and an 18/1.5 Uverse connection running 10.6
(64-bit).
