Unspecified vulnerability in Google Chrome before 7.0.517.41 allows
remote attackers to bypass the pop-up blocker via unknown vectors.

It is unclear to me as of yet whether this does affect webkitgtk; the code looks like it may be applicable but due to how Chrome handles things differently, it is possible this is Chrome-specific.  It needs further investigation.
