Details

If you're in a XUL document which is a sibling to a XUL overlay named "foo.xul" and try to run |document.loadOverlay("foo.xul", null);| you get an exception because the method doesn't accept relative locations.  I intend to try to fix this so that relative URIs work correctly, where "relative" is defined as "relative to the location of the document executing the script" (because it's the way that |window.location| works in webpage JS code).

I don't know when I'll get to this, but it's now on the to-do list.

I guess you didn't get to it. ;)
