Not a real-world web page; but the bug makes for an easy DOS attack (with one line of javascript code, a page can be created which hangs and crashes any webkit based browser.)

Updated the patch just now, i'm pretty sure this will handle any simple case of recursive document.write( ) 's.

However, if a person is aware of the max-recursion-depth, it may be possible to come up with a somewhat more complicated variant ...
