reduced test case

Follow up to Bug 1260763.

Original issue was about some preferences panels becoming blank if the inspector was opened while reloading the page.

The issue was narrowed down to the test case attached here (accessing targets in a listenerChangeListener handler + event defined on a textbox element). Pasting relevant comment from Neil in Bug 1260763 below:
