If any WebKit hacker wants to comment, there are two bugs:

1) We don't set the flag that says we want to use XEmbed. We're an
NPRuntime plugin that doesn't need to draw anything. With Firefox, we
get by alright. WebKit aborts because it thinks we want to use the Xt
mainloop. See the chromium bug[0] for information.
2) We don't obey the UTF8Length parameter of a string NPVariant and
just use the bytes as a NUL-terminated string blindly. On Firefox,
this is fine. On WebKit, there's extra junk after the string data, so
we need to switch to a g_strndup.
