Experimental ChatBox bug

Hello,

I ran into this simple bug when I was trying this new experimental CB page.

Bug arises when you check the box next to your private message notification, then hit the submit button. After a few seconds, with the next auto-refresh, that frame loads the front page (index.pl being that form's action).

    Fixed it. Thanks for the note.
    Fixed the wrong node, apparently :) That node had the same problem as you described. I fixed the other one, too, now.

      How did you fix it? I still face the same behaviour.

      My browser is Mozilla 1.0 by the way, if that is of any concern.

Chatterbox?
[Corion]: But now I want to register a one-shot for two events, of which only one will arrive, so my data structure doesn't work anymore...
[Lady_Aleena]: Corion, ouchy.
[Corion]: (maybe I should write this up as a SoPW) - currently, the "most efficient" data structure I come up with is a single array which I scan for the first fitting one-shot. Not efficient but I don't expect more than five outstanding one-shots anyway
[choroba]: can't you create a meta-key corresponding to the disjunction of the events?
[robby_dobby]: Corion: Heh. This whole thing smells of Strategy Pattern or MVC pattern.
[Corion]: And performance linear to the number of registered one-shots doesn't feel that bad. Maybe I should collect statistics on how many callbacks are outstanding ;)
[Corion]: choroba: Yes, but the longer I thought about efficient hashes mapping the event type back to their callbacks, and how to keep them in sync, the more I thought that all that optimization might just not be worth it, even if it's horribly inelegant
[Lady_Aleena]: My biggest problem with hashes at the moment is one with 2,501 keys.
[choroba]: how many event types are there?
[Corion]: Also I found that I can't conveniently weaken an array slot, which also is inconvenient, as I want my one-shots to disappear if the caller discards them
