At one point, yes.  I don't recall many bug reports about this aspect of 
things recently, but that may be because Gecko now has the "do something 
sane on reload in the simple cases" behavior.

I do feel pretty strongly that reload() doing something different from 
the browser's reload UI is ... very odd.
