Probably the reason Google does it that way is to accomodate 
browsers that don't support frames.  Although Google's approach is
usable, I think having frames does look better.

But it's not the frames shown when searching that are giving 
us fits -- it's the manual refresh stuff.  One way to get around 
this would be to open a fresh browser to display the logging info.
