On the other hand, it can't possibly work like XMLHttpRequest - for  
whatever reason, the Web Sockets spec says that events are posted  
asynchronously. Maybe I'm not the last an only one to get confused by  
this difference from XMLHttpRequest events.

In light of this, I think that the test in question is incorrect.
