Also tested and found vulnerable:

Netscape 6.2.3, Netscape 7.0, Netscape 7.01, Netscape 7.02 on Linux.

Mozilla 1.0.2, 1.1, 1.2.1, 1.3a on Linux and Mozilla 1.0 on Windows.

Internet Explorer throws an exception when you try to call the
onclick function by saved reference - perfectly correct
behavior. Opera seems to silently ignore the call. For Opera it
seems to be a common behavior to ignore bad calls without
throwing an exception (another example is calling document.write
by saved reference on a document that changed origin).

Finally, shameless plug. Our Browser Security Test
(http://bcheck.scanit.be/bcheck/) now checks for this vulnerability.
