[thelist] Reload parent frame from iframe?

I've been trying to get this bug fixed for about three weeks and it's 
driving me nuts.

A client fills out a form; if they enter the same first name, last name and 
email address, an iframe appears with a login box below. When I correctly 
complete the UN and PW the iframe reloads with the updated page. I've tried 
all kinds of combinations so that the PARENT page reloads. I've tried a 
whole bunch of approaches.

I've tried things such as if (window != top) top.location.href = 
location.href; or
top.location.href='url to jump to';  with no success. This should work 
easily in conventional frames I imagine, but with the iframe it doesn't seem to

Can anyone suggest a better approach?
