I have a parent window that calls a popup, but via a semi convoluted
process where it seems to lose its parent designation.

I want that pop up to have a link which will a) close the pop up and
b) redirect this "semi" parent window to another URL.

I could name the semi-parent window something, if that would help.

All the ideas I've seen online have to do with calling back to parent
windows, but they don't work for me.

Any thoughts?
