Build 2001112003 Windows 98

1) Use Ctrl+T to open a new tab.
2) Select a different tab.
3) Select original tab.

Actual results:

First step shows URL bar with empty text field.  In the third step it is now
called about:blank.

Expected results:

The same display name should be used in either case.  Either Ctrl+T should pull
up a window with about:blank as text, or step 3 should give an empty field.

Alternately, Ctrl+T could bring up about:blank and make it selected, so that any
typing would overwrite it, allowing consistent naming and easy typing into the
new tab URL bar.

The summary isn't very descriptive, but...

This is an artifact caused by bug 103720. about:blank is being loaded, but
doesn't show. The difference is that about:blank doesn't generate the event that
would fill the URL bar with the correct URL on loading. This isn't quite a
duplicate, but would be fixed when bug 103720 is fixed.
