[patch] [cla] dojox.embed.Quicktime causes infinite loop when QT is not installed

Reported by: guest Owned by: Tom Trenka
Priority: high Milestone: 1.2
Component: Dojox Version: 1.1.1

When using dojox.embed.Quicktime, Firefox 2 (win) tries to detect the version of Quicktime (QT), but if QT is not installed, it goes into an infinite setTimeout() loop and eats up CPU cycles like its corn flakes.

I was also having issues in FF3 (mac) that were related to this.

The solution is to avoid checking the QT version if the QT plugin isn't listed in the browser plugins.

I've attached a patch to fix the problem.
