I hit a page with a WMP played via the plug-in.  For whatever reason, it
couldn't be played and a "Bad File Format" warning dialogue appeared.  When I
tried to click the "OK" button to dismiss it, the box persisted and I had to
Force Quit and reboot the app to continue using Moz.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to play WMP via plug-in.
2. Dialogue box appears.
3. OK button cannot be clicked.
4. Browser freezes.

Actual Results:  
Browser freezed up.

Expected Results:  
Click on OK button should have dismissed warning dialogue and I should have been
able to backpage and continue using the browser.
Reporter: can you reproduce the bug with a very recent build? similar
mac-events-code issues have been fixed lately.
