This page would reload itself - the spinning wheel in the tab heading, the
scroll bar stopped responding, the page eventually went blank (we have a DUN
connection at work). So I couldn't really erad the article without waiting.
IE doesn't do this.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Bring up
http://www7b.software.ibm.com/dmdd/library/techarticle/0211swart/0211swart2.html?t=gr,lnxw07=Win2Linux
2. Wait till it finishes loading.
3. Resize

Actual Results:  
The page started to reload

Expected Results:  
Should have just reized the page.

The document contains ...
  
  <script LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
  function nsResize() {
    if (navigator.appName.indexOf("Netscape") != -1) {
    	if ( (parseFloat(navigator.appVersion) < 4.05) ||
    	     (parseFloat(navigator.appVersion) > 4.08) )
  		location.reload(true);
    }
  }
  </SCRIPT>

and then later...

<body onresize=nsResize() ...

So, for the wrong reasons, IBM is intentionally doing that. There is 
no need for that code in a mozilla1.x browser (but it used to be 
needed in Nav4.x browsers for some pages).
