And another problem:

EXPECTED RESULT: Tab title/titlebar should display either the <title> of the page, or 
the root filename if the page has no title

WHAT HAPPENS INSTEAD: Tab title/titlebar displays Untitled

Probably derives from the same issue.

Comment 4 by phistuck@gmail.com, Feb 12 2009

Also derives from this issue - the Web Inspector cannot be activated.

Not sure if this is UI or backend... somewhere we're failing to notify that the page 
title has changed.

WebKit isn't triggering our detection in glue when a new navigation occurs. This load 
type seems to be FrameLoadTypeRedirectWithLockedBackForwardList and we trigger off of 
the back forward list. I'm going to research how this used to work.

Add missing bool parameter to changeLocation(). This causes us to not update
the back/forward list and current location since it thinks history is locked.
