This line only affects when you order surf to load url "manually". It should
not affect clicked links or redirects. This is handleded using callback
"loadstatuschange". At least to my understanding. Also history navigation seems
to be "handled" there too. In reality I did not dwell to deep into this. I
tried to solve mentioned history problem, but somehow 404'ed url was hard to
extract from history without introducing other problems. There is a posibility
of mirroring webkits history list, but do not think that is needed.

To be fair I'm not exactly sure what is your concern. I guess you'r worried
that when entering url, getting redirected and trying to edit url you would
get original url you entered and not the real/current one. That is not the
case, url setting for that is in previously mentioned callback.
