I presume the TC is something like

<!doctype html>
Before stop
After stop

Only Opera displays "after stop" here. We are planning to change this 
behaviour, so that window.stop is much more like the "abort the 
document" (I haven't yet closely studied how this interacts with the 
readystate and other things that Henri has been looking at).
