As reported in bug 10958, fast/js/window-properties.html will fail when run with all the other layout tests, but running it by itself or running all of fast/js will show it passing. This is causing the failures on the buildbot.

The failure seems to be caused by DumpRenderTree opening every test in the same WebView, thereby building up a session history. We need tests to be able to specify that they need a clean session.

r16720 fixes the checked-in results to match what you get when you do a full LayoutTests run. However, we still need a way for tests to specify they need a clean history.

layoutTestController.clearBackForwardList  got added a long time ago (http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/25515, if not earlier).
