It is definitely broken on the trunk.  Recent change to UI was accompanied by 
some bogus JS (remove the "_blank" args to delayedOpenWindow if you want to fix 
it for yourself).  I'll check in the fix after my 3:00 meeting.

Ben broke this in openLocation.js rev 1.15. cc:ing him so he'll at least know 
what he did. He Ben, you tested this before inserting an extra parameter and 
checking it in, right?
