Sure, here you go:

In IE you get "firstOpener" alerted both times, which is as spec.

In Firefox and Chrome "secondOpener" is alerted the second time.

I'm almost embarrassed to say that I don't have Safari to test against, but
I believe it's the same as Firefox and Chrome.

I've got a fix for Gecko, but we're concerned that there might be some
compat issues and I haven't had time to look into it.

If I remember correctly the fix for WebKit was pretty straight forward, so
if you would be able to take on the compat testing that would be fantastic.
