We've had two recent tinderbox Rd failures on this test, one on Windows and one on Mac; in both cases, the failure is due to a difference in link coloring between the testcase and reference. The failure looks intermittent, it's not happening on every run.

I suspect this may be a regression from the recent landing of bug 461199 or maybe bug 542592.

The async history code doesn't block onload on the link coloring.  We should probably just remove the href attributes from those links, or set them to '#' so they don't appear visited, or something.

Attached patch Like so?Splinter Review
After a few minutes thinking about whether I had any idea at all which of those choices was better and more future proof (answer: no, no idea), I realized that the problem ought to be susceptible to my skill at randomly mashing on the keyboard. Sadly, the tryserver doesn't suffer from this bug, not being slow enough I guess, but at least it doesn't fail with this.
