The crux of the problem is I only know if the popup *has been* opened,
but not if it *is* open. Therefore, the script doesn't know whether to
simply refocus, or whether to popup a fresh window.

Are these the only solutions?
* handle onerror in some creative way
* hidden frames

BTW, I do have the luxury of ignoring non IE 5.5+ browsers on this
project, if it helps.

Thanks,
Jamie
