Details

I have the following HTML page: when Mozilla tries to parse the page, it core
dumps. I've tried this on both Windows NT and RH 6.0. I'm using Mozilla M8,
build 1999071416

<html>
	<body>
testing
</body>
</html>

<script language=javascript>

location.replace('test2.html');

</script>

djoham - thanks for finding this!

Here's a bug sleuthing trail, if you'd like to try some of these tools when
filing future bugs -

an lxr (http://lxr.mozilla.org) search for 'Replace' finds likely candidate
nsLocation.cpp; and cvs blame (linked off the lxr page for nsLocation.cpp) shows
the last person to modify LocationImpl::Replace as rickg.

Reassigning to rickg@netscape.com.

Sorry -- but your script is wrong. We do exactly what IE and nav do.
Oh yes, the core dump appears to be gone too.
