Status: Accepted
Change Description: see diff given below
Rationale: Concurred with reporter's comments.

I've made document.open() force salvageable to false while the unloading
happens, then force it back to true for the "new" document.

In the case of history navigation, the timeouts are suspended because the
algorithm for setTimeout and setInterval requires the time to be time spent
with the document fully active. For example, step 7 of the setTimeout algorithm
says "...wait until the Document associated with the method context has been
fully active for a further timeout milliseconds (not necessarily
consecutively).".

Please don't hesitate to reopen the bug if I've missed something here.
