Yes, this is a problem for Caja, and I'm still undecided how to solve it.
 The slow script dialog can fire at any time; in particular, it can fire
when some data structure is in an inconsistent state, and then an event
handler firing at the same time might be able to take advantage of that
inconsistent state.

"It's a bug in Firefox" seems like the most straightforward answer.
