I'm guessing that if you turn on greasemonkey.logChrome, you'll see an
error message. I wish there was an easy way to select multiple items in
the JS console so you could easily copy the entire dialog.

Basically, GM watches as a page loads and wait for the "skeleton
document" to be made and grabs it's references then. The idea is that we
want to get a copy of the document before the page has had an
oppurtunity to mess with it. I suspect that this isn't happening for
some reason.
