I've done this on three different machines (both PPC and Intel), and the bug is always reproducible:

1) Open a window in Safari with multiple tabs
2) Hide the address bar/toolbar
3) Load (or reload) a page in a new tab
4) Select a different, existing tab and reload the page (using the key command or menu command)

The result: the page in the previously selected tab loads into the currently selected tab. The only way to prevent this is to reload pages with the toolbar visible. On my Powerbook, I always (or usually, due to this bug) use my browsers with the address bar/toolbar hidden, as it saves a good deal of space. I've sent bug reports to Apple since I first noticed this bug (when Safari 3 Beta was first released), but I haven't heard or seen any reports from anyone else... I'm certainly not the only one experiencing this, am I?

I get this all the time too. I always keep the address bar hidden as well.

Just downloaded the new update to Safari this morning. I'm hoping it helps with some of those issues (I've seen them intermittently, so I can't really point to one specific site or type code. Sometimes it works, sometimes the browser just loads the wrong page in the wrong tab).
