Element.addMethods('SPAN', ...) fails on WebKit

Reported by dami | January 2nd, 2010 @ 02:23 AM

Fatal error on WebKit when calling Element.addMethods on a SPAN element (prototype.js v1.6.1, Windows XP).

Element.addMethods('SPAN', {foo: function(){}});

Tested on both Safari 4.0.4 and Google Chrome : both complain that
TypeError: Result of expression 'destination' [undefined] is not an object, prototype.js:2999

It seems that the specific DOM class for 'SPAN' has no 'prototype' property.

No such problem under MSIE8 or Firefox.

As a temporary fix I changed line 3040 from

if (Object.isUndefined(klass)) continue;


if (Object.isUndefined(klass) || Object.isUndefined(klass.prototype)) continue;

which apparently gets rid of the problem, but I have no idea if this is the proper way to solve it.
