[thelist] JavaScript - closing windows in NN6/Gecko bug ?

A couple of recent threads have touched on Javascripts using self.close()
/ opener.window.close().

I've found that Gecko (Mozilla 14  / Beonex) has a tendency to crash (IPF)
when closing either self or opener using either onClick or onMouseDown.

As a workaround I've adapted all my window-closing scripts to set a timeout
on the window close command thus:


which seems to solve the problem in most (but not all) cases.

I was just wondering if anyone else had come across this bug (?) in Gecko
and had any more info about squashing it?
