Bug 15811

Summary: WebKit plug-ins can re-enter WebKit under attach()

[This is a follow-up to bug 15405 regarding the general case]

HTMLObjectElement::attach() calls RenderPartObject::updateWidget() which lets WebKit plugins execute arbitrary code, potentially re-entering WebKit.

I think at some point the protection against creating widgets when updateWidget() is called by attach() applied to WebKit plug-ins, but later it was restricted to Netscape plug-ins.
