[ka-Map-users] Firefox problem with ka-map

Hi all,

Using a couple days old CVS, and I think this is a long standing issue 
with Firefox, we get occasional partial tiles loaded. I have not been 
able to reproduce this with IE 6.

The tile is loaded, but it seems to be truncated, if I go into Page Info 
-> Media and copy/paste the tile's url into another window it typically 
shows a partial tile, a shift refresh on the tile loads the whole tile 
which is cached and the ka-map tile is whole.

I do not think this is because we have a locking problem on the tile 
read. I have even changed tile.php to write to <tile>.png- and then 
rename that to <tile>.png after it is written.

It seems like Firefox is getting overloaded with pending requests and 
somehow the loading tile is getting interrupted. This tile happens if I 
expand the window to full screen and start panning repeatedly across the 
window. I also noticed that IE disables a second grab and pan until all 
the tiles are loaded from the first request.

I also like the countdown of items to be loaded in the IE status bar.

So anyone have any thoughts on this?

It would be nice to have a action that implements a ctrl-click on a tile 
to reload the tile from the server to fix broken tiles if needed.
