Overview Description: The removeEventListener method should remove an event listener created with the addEventListener method, but it doesn't. Steps to Reproduce: 1) Create an simple event listener function that does something noticable. 2) Register the event listener on the document. 3) Remove the event listener. 4) Trigger the event. (in the test case click anywhere in the document to witness this behavior) Actual Results: Something noticable happens. Expected Results: Nothing noticable should happen. Build Date & Platform Bug Found: Linux 2000-01-25-20 (M13) Additional Builds and Platforms Tested On: none Additional Information: I'm using event capturing here, but the problem manifests itself without it also.
