Description Tony Chang 2008-02-19 14:17:56 PST
According to the HTML5 spec, while resolving a window.open, the new window location should be about:blank.

In ToT WebKit, the location is /.  This appears to be in WebCore/bindings/js/JSLocation.cpp which returns prettyURL() + "/", but sometimes the KURL is invalid so prettyURL() returns "".

layout test

Here's a layout test that output the value of window.location during a window.open.  This test would go in LayoutTests/fast/dom/Window/.

I can't seem to repro either.
