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