damn good that im not the only one having trouble with current
frameset/javascript implementation for this querywindow stuff ... ;-)

so, till today no one adressed or even recognized the problem with
window hijacking?

and second: the queryframe is only introduced for the querywindow? so if
the querywindow doesnt need this frame anymore we can get rid of this?

my solution would be:

replace ANY window names with crypted! (window hijacking)

left frame gererates window object querywindow

  var querywindow = open(...);

every access required to the qerywindow will got through this frame


access from the querywindow will user opener

  opener.frame[0] ... the left frame
  opener.frame[1] ... the phpmain frame
