Use location.replace( ) to get around this problem...


<script language="JavaScript1.1">
replaceTimer = window.setTimeout( "location.replace('warn.html');", 5000 );
<meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="5;url=warn.html">

Note: this also fixes the Linux bug where the Meta refresh is
executed even if Flash is detected. I have forwarded the code
to Colin Moock for inclusion in his tutorial example.
