Steps to reproduce:

In the Watir tests, we have a set of nested frames (starting here:

A couple levels down there is this link.
<a id="four" href="definition_lists.html" target="_top">this link should consume the page</a>

Before the click there is no title in the top level browsing context. After the click there is, but it is not getting returned.
I don't know if this might be an issue of not forcing a return to the top level browsing context after a navigation?

Actual results:

no title returned

Expected results:

title should be returned
