While viewing a "gamecenter" DURING a baseball game at sportsline.com, it does not take long for Safari to display a slow script warning. If I don't stop the script, Safari threatens to become unresponsive. This was NOT an issue on Safari 2.0.4, but IS an issue on 3.0.2 for XP and 10.4.

During a baseball game, go to Sportsline's scoreboard and click on any "gamecenter" ......   http://www.sportsline.com/mlb/scoreboard

This "bug" is also an issue while viewing live scoring for your fantasy sports  teams at sportsline.com

This bug sounds similar to bug 14133, which was fixed in <http://trac.webkit.org/projects/webkit/changeset/23526>. Can you reproduce the problem with the latest build from <http://nightly.webkit.org>?

I don't use the nightlies, but this is still an issue in 3.0.3 for Windows.

I can't reproduce this with Safari for Windows 310a18 seed and WebKit nightly r26359 with Virtual PC 7.03 on Mac OS X 10.4.10 (8R218) on a 1.5 GHz PowerBook G4 with 1 GB RAM.

What I do see is an "outlier" resource loading from cbs.112.2o7.net, which is probably some kind of user tracking mechanism, but I don't get a "slow script" alert dialog.
