Bug#609768: iceweasel: two authentication dialogs, the second one under the window

Package: iceweasel
Version: 3.5.16-4
Severity: normal

On http://intranet.inria.fr/ Iceweasel opens two authentication
dialogs at the same time, one above the main browser window and
one below.

In practice, one can click "Cancel" (or authenticate) in the visible
authentication dialog. Then Iceweasel appears to be frozen. But if
one lowers the browser window or looks at the window list, one sees
a second authentication dialog.

This bug is always reproducible, even in safe mode (-safe-mode
option). Upstream Firefox 4 beta[*] doesn't have this problem (only
one authentication dialog appears, above the browser window).
