When loading the url above the loading ends up in a endless loop. Webkit does not crash, only the tab is useless.
It keeps my processor quite bussy.

<SCRIPT FOR=window EVENT=onresize>window.location.href = window.location.href;</script>
This is specifically an issue with this non-standard SCRIPT syntax - setting window.location.href to the same value should and does reload. Perhaps we could skip over such scripts if we don's support them.
The class of bugs that were "page reloading endlessly" or "page doing something weird and bizarre in Safari but no others" that were due to the <script for=...> syntax are fixed as of http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/43061 - we now ignore scripts with this syntax.
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=16915 tracks adding full support for this feature.
Given the above comment, should we close this bug as fixed?
