Non-advert pop-up menu Javascript is being incorrectly blocked by /(.*/)?((flash)?pop|live(cnt|count(er)?)).*\.(js|php|cgi) in default.action.

There seems to be a popular Javascript that is used by many different sites (around 20 in my logs) such as:
http://tiggit.net/forum/jscripts/popup_menu.js?ver=1600

Other examples:
http://www.av-comparatives.org/forum/wcf/js/PopupMenuList.class.js
http://oystatic.ignimgs.com/src/ve3d/sites/ve3d.ign.com/js/production/popupmenu.js
http://www.cutepdf.com/include/popmenu.js
http://www.cutepdf.com/include/popmenuv.js

I suggest an unblocking pattern such as:
/(.*/)?pop[a-z_-]*menu

Grepping my logs doesn't show any examples of true negatives with this unblocker, so it shouldn't reduce the effectiveness advert popup blocking.
