I use the online chat room based on PHPOpenChat. The chat page consists of 3
frames, one of them ("output") displaying chat messages from all participants.
If I use mozilla 1.4a or later, the output frame restarts itself, redisplaying
all messages the server has in its log, about every couple of seconds. Works
fine with IE or Mozilla 1.3 and earlier. Looks like the HTTP connection for this
frame is reset by mozilla all the time, so server re-transmits the data.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://chat.voivodfan.com/chat URL using any Mozilla build 1.4a or later
2. Register and login.

Actual Results:  
See the "output" frame scrolling repeatedly and indefinitely.

Expected Results:  
Should see the chat log once, and only new messages afterwards.

Does not happen in 1.4RC1. Probably fixed.

I cannot confirm this bug, but the page do not load completely. It seems to be a
loop in loading some frames.
