#176 JavaScript click events executing twice


If I navigate to a local html file containing the following code,

<div onclick="alert('hi')">Test</div>,

clicking "Test" often (but not always) results in two alert boxes being created.

    I've created a patch that stops this happening, but I don't know if it breaks other functionality.

    org.lobobrowser.html.renderer.RBlock.java calls onMouseClick twice, once for bodyLayout and once for HtmlController.

    I prevented this by changing an if to an else if, but I suspect the actual resolution is more complex.

    I've attached the patch so someone more familiar with Lobo can check it out.

    Hmm - can't work out how to attach... :))

    Anyway, here is the patch:
