Try removing your setTimeout('popWin.focus()', 500); If the 
document hasn't loaded by the time the parent calls the focus it's 
probably breaking popWin. Since you have no control over web 
traffic speed I suggest you do not intergrate any timing events 
between the two windows involving traffic. Instead use 
onload=window.focus() in the body tag of the document in popWin.
