Hi, thanks for the bug report.

If you suspect that this is the problem you don't need to rebuild
webkit, just set WEBKIT_USE_SINGLE_WEB_PROCESS=1 and run luakit.

Does that fix the problem? If it does I will update the webkit2gtk
packages, and you can also force that variable in luakit so it works
with unpatched versions of webkit2gtk.

This is how Geary did it:
