I'm wondering if this is somehow related to a problem I had on Windows 98
(where everything was working
fine on Linux). If I remember well, in a similar situation where I started a
new request in the after filter
from the previous request (i.e. to follow a link or loading an image), I was
getting a close event for the
original request that was erroneously associated to the second, aborting it.

After going mad for a while trying to figure that out, I "fixed" it by
manipulating the "Windows Handle"
right after creating the new request ( with HTRequest_new ) and before the

You may want to give it a try, and see what happen.

 UINT m;
 HWND w = HTEventList_getWinHandle(&m);
 HTEventList_setWinHandle(w, m+1);
