This still easily repros on iOS 8.1.3 (12B466). Follow the exact repro steps above, or go to this trivial fiddle: http://jsfiddle.net/vhy8h78q/ . This is causing some pain in our product; a fix would be most appreciated.
I don't have the privileges to reopen this bug; please let me know if you'd like me to file a new one.
Here are some other users from the web who reported hitting the same problem since this bug was marked fixed:
Regression: Meant to mention that this is Safari (on iOS 8.1.3 as stated). Safari on iOS7 (7.0.4) doesn't have this problem, so it is a regression.
FWIW, Chrome 33.0.1750.517 on Android 4.4.2 also works fine (lacks this problem).
Note that this still repros on iOS 8.2 (12D508), in Safari.
I also filed Apple bug 20228697, referencing this WebKit bug, requesting that the fix be picked up in the released product. Per Apple custom, that bug is not publicly visible / linkable.
