Javascript errors in Public To-Do List

Hello! I have been playing with your service, it is nifty! I feel obligated to help and point out some bugs.

I made a public to-do list and then tried to access it using the 'Permalink' link.

When loading the page, a Javascript error is detected in line 11949 of /js/js.public.rtm, to wit:

whatsNew is not defined

the line of code in question is

whatsNew.setCount('shared_tasks', 0);

Then, after awhile of "loading...", I get the "rtm.public.preload failed. Try again?" message. When I click "Try again?" we go back through the same cycle again, javascript error, then preload failure.

I am guessing the failure of the first is leading to the failure of the second somehow.

I did these tests in WinXP using IE 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519 and Mozilla 1.8b, both browsers produce the same javascript error. The 'Permalink' I am trying to access is

This is the result of making my "Inbox" public.

I hope this helps! :)
