getComputedTextLength always returns 0 with tspan elements.  FF3 does not.

Should alert the same number twice.  Instead will be 42 (or so) and then 0.

Yup.  Looks like a real bug.  Thanks for the simple example.

Can confirm this bug.

We use the tspan.getComputedTextLength() function for a manual word wrap of a label. Due to the returned 0 our word wrap does not work at all in Webkit. This is a major issue for us and we'd appreciate it to be fixed somewhere in the near future...

Bug is resolved in trunk since a while, we forgot to close this bug report.
Nevertheless, I've modified the attached testcase to be a real layout test, and I'd like to land it.
Dirk, can you check?
