build id: 1999060909 platform: windows nt To reproduce, load the above URL in the browser. Note the horrifically ugly background image. When you follow the link on the page, it disappears.
Sounds like a dup of the bug #7746, but I can't check because the hostname is not valid in the supplied url.
Try http://www.schist.org/ , I tried it using the 1999061008 build and the same problem, with background images disapearing when the mailto link is clicked occured
there's a simple test case available internally at Netscape (the above URL); outside the company, just go to any page with a background image and follow a link to a slow server. I'm also going to go ahead and mark 7746 as a duplicate of this one as it's (a) more general and (b) has no simplified test case.

This issue still occurs in the July 1 build. (Mac, Win 95, Linux)

This issue seems to have been solved with the latest NECKO builds 1999080408 on all 3 platforms. The link on the http://schist/bg.html takes you to the correct destination without making the ugly background image(s) disappear.
This appears to be fixed. Clicking on the Mailto: link will leave the background image intact.
I thought worksforme was for bugs that weren't reproducible? This was definitely reproducible... more of a mystery fix really...
