wayofdragon commented on JBSEAM-3716:

I have found a bug in this code. 

If the server response comes back before the "window.setTimeout(xxx,0) expires, it will drop it. 
>From reading the javascript specs, the minimum timeout value is actually around 25ms. Anything smaller than that, it gets rounded up. 
Also, using timer to set response callback are inherently flawed IMO. There's always going to be some sort of race condition. 

This problem seems to happen on internet explorer, and safari. Firebox doesn't seem to have a problem with it though. 

I discovered this problem when I set a break point on the incoming request processing code on the server. If the breakpoint is inserted, everything is good. But when I removed the breakpoint, the problem appears again. 

Reopening this issue for further investigation.
