    Hi guys,
    A couple of times now, Safari has started doing a strange bouncing thing that continues until I quit the application. As far as I know, there are only two types of normal bouncing:
    1) Application loading, which is an even, regular bounce.
    2) Application wants attention, which is a damped bounce.
    What I'm seeing is NEITHER of these. It's something different. Clicking the icon does nothing.

    To describe the bounce: The icon appears under the dock, moves vertically upwards to just above the dock, and then suddenly jumps back under the dock again, where the cycle repeats. Picture of icon being under the dock is attached.

    I have no idea what this means. I can't find anything similar. WTF??? What's going on?

    P.S. It's happening right now.
