xhr "load" param broken in Chrome in 1.6 and 1.7

xhr's seem to be fine, but after receiving response from server it seems that the function specified in "load" is not working.

i just noticed this today -- did Chrome change something that caused this problem?

I set up a minimal test case, but since it's an ajax issue I'm providing a script on my server. You can visit it here:

I'll leave this script up until the issue is resolved.

Expected output: the string "106 miles" written to the innerHTML of a div on the page. Actual output: correct in FF, sometimes blank in Chrome.

If it works for you in Chrome, do a hard shift-reload a few times and it always breaks after a few tries (for me).

Client-side code: <html> <head> <script src="" type="text/javascript"></script> <script type="text/javascript"> require(["dojo/_base/xhr", "dojo/dom"], function(xhr,dom){


url: "", handleAs: "json", load: function(data) {

var myDiv = dom.byId("foo"); myDiv.innerHTML = data.badges[0].name;

window.location.href = "";

}, error: function(error) { }


}); </script> </head> <body> <div id="foo"></div> </body> </html>

Actually, I'm now not seeing it anymore with the test case I provided. It seems to happen more reliably with a more complex case, so I'll work on that and resubmit.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

I think that the problem I was having was due to a combo of some caching issues, a transient problem with Chrome between auto-updates, and some Chrome-specific syntax errors I had in my code. I think that my issue is resolved and it's not actually a problem with the toolkit. Sorry, everyone!
