Chrome7: window.open blocked on synchronous ajax call

I've noticed a bug appeared in jquery-1.4.js

Basicly, chrome always block popup "opened" in (synchronous) ajax success function. I guess it's due to this commit: https://github.com/jquery/jquery/commit/fe6c86d53046b0f4d648f61c0b8e75387af65152

Test url: http://jsfiddle.net/A6JMb/ (on 1.4.3)

Note: 1.3.2 version works fine.

Thanks for the report, but this is not a bug in either product. Putting window.open inside an asynchronously executed function causes it to lose the initial call stack, which means the browser does not know if it occurred from a user-generated action or not, which means it blocks any attempts to pop up windows. This will happen regardless of if it is inside an interval or if it is inside onreadystatechange.

Yes, i'm aware of that, but the Chrome bug i described is about synchronous ajax calls.
