[Chilli] IPhone Issue

Upgraded to CoovaChilli 1.2.2 and did some tracing. I now have it
working on any device that's not a blackberry or an i* as far as I can
test. Traced the issue and in the compiled chillijs.chi I have a line
that assigns chillijsWindowOnLoad to the window.onload event.
The window.onload event is assigned to generic function() which sets
the logon form. On other browsers this function gets run but on Safari
it simply skips to the end of the function then sits there
interminably (though sometimes I'll get a login form after 20 minutes
or so)

I think that the way the function is called by window.onload throws
off how Safari (presumably by extension all the other apple devices)
implements the onload function. Has anyone seen this in their usage of
Coova? I had tested by replacing the function() body with a simple pop
up which shows up on other browsers but not on Safari.
