Attached file test_case.html
The attached test case seems to hang the browser. I let it run for 10 minutes on an opt build but it did not exit. It seems to slowly consume memory. I have seen memory usage as high as 5GB.
Flags: in-testsuite?
Every time we set the textContent of the script element we call onload on the script element so we keep calling it's onload callback. Chrome doesn't seem to do this.
