I'd expect it to work in the same way it works for XMLHttpRequest -  
e.g., in an onreadystate handler of XMLHttpRequest, readyState does  
not change due to background processing of incoming data.

For those not involved with WebKit development, the test is available  
at <http://trac.webkit.org/browser/trunk/LayoutTests/websocket/tests/script-tests/simple.js?rev=51615
