Solved the WebKit issue. This turned out to be an epic battle which
notably involved downloading the WebKit source code to figure out what was
going on. Landed a fix which mitigates the issue where possible (WebKit
browsers running a recent enough version of trunk) and falls back to
standard behavior elsewhere. Awaiting feedback from John Graham. Will keep
you posted.
