Possibly related:
http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=36142.  (Last I
checked, you could crash Chrome with Google Maps just by scrolling the
map around for long enough, and I hit similar issues with my own code
in other WebKit-based browsers.)

This isn't a problem with the "noexecute" approach.  But, since
browsers already need to be able to deal with this for images, that
bridge is already crossed...
