Contact me directly and I can give you the sample privately, but I'd rather 
not share it with world and have traffic hitting on it forever. In short 
though I have a simple page like this:

  | Links to be loaded into frame below     |
  | Frame for pages linked from above       |
  |                                         |

Some links are to HTML, some to JPGs. All but 1 link are to external 
sources. It's JPG links that cause problems for me.

Picking a JPG link always loads the latest image into the frame. However, 
if I middle-click on a Link to open it in a new tab, the JPG is the last 
one displayed in a new tab. The location is a proper external URL (not 
/tmp/... anymore). If I refresh the tab, the latest image is loaded. That 
image will be used in a new tab until it's explicitly refreshed.
