Ctrl+click (to open a new tab) and Right-click->Open Link in New Tab behave differently at neowin.net.

STR:
1) http://www.neowin.net/index.php
2) Perform both aforementioned open in new tab commands at the location pointed out in the attached screenshot.

Ctrl+click results in the current page loading the URL and also a new tab
Right-click -> Open Link in New Tab results in current tab opening URL

Expected: Ctrl+click results in just a new tab opening the URL

Same results with the latest trunk and back to 2.0.0.20 (far as I tested)
There's a listener for the click event, and that listener loads the target address in the current document. Safari and Chrome execute the click event for ctrl+click as well.
I should changed this to a TE bug and contact neowin then?
yes

I will just add it here:

I have observed that some web pages seem to be able to distort the wanted behavour CTRL+Click -> Opens in new tab. I have repeatedly observed that CTRL+Click will open a new tab with the desired link but will load the same link in the source tab as well.
