Putting some printfs confirms that GetDocumentFromScriptContext() returns the document from page B.

Yes, this is exactly what is happening. Are you sure that is "wrong" though? I.e, what does IE do?
Note that I raised this with the web apis WG today.
IE(In reply to comment #3) > Yes, this is exactly what is happening.

This can be worked around in FF by having page A use window.setTimeout to execute the function (found workaround at http://dema.ruby.com.br/articles/2005/05/06/be-careful-when-mixing-ajax-and-popup-windows-on-firefox).
I believe we've decided that the W3C spec will define more or less IEs behaviour as the correct one, so keeping this bug open to make us conform with the spec once the spec is out.
I will wait a patch.
Windows Vista, Firefox 184.108.40.206
Note that the specification now defines this. http://tc.labs.opera.com/apis/XMLHttpRequest/open/ has a bunch of related testcases.

I can't reproduce this problem. In particular, http://web.mit.edu/bzbarsky/www/testcases/xmlhttprequest/base-uri-1.html shows that we use the base URI of the callee here, as do WebKit and Blink.
