the "Slow script" warning dialog should also be shown in the JS Console,
especially to show a file name/line number. the patch I'm going to attach also
shows the function name.

This seems like an aweful lot of code to print a message on the console which
is really only printed when we either execute malicious code or when a web
developer forgets to end a loop. Other than that this would be really really
rare, so I can't really justify adding all this code for that. How about just a
call to PrintWarningOnConsole() (currently file-static in nsDOMClassInfo.cpp)?
