iframe causing Canvas editor to freeze?

Is anybody else having trouble with the Canvas editor freezing up for Pages that contain an iframe?

 

I see this, but clicking on the HTML Editor button does not give me the HTML view I need to edit the page, and clicking on the Cancel button does not work. I have to close the tab and exit. From what I can tell, this seems to be happening ONLY on those pages where I am iframing a Canvas File. It does not seem to be happening when I am iframing something that is not a Canvas File.

 

Update: Yes, I just confirmed. When I switch this to an https iframe that is NOT a Canvas File, no problem. I'm worried that this is not good news for people who are using the Canvas File workaround to embed Twitter and other javascripts. Hmmmm.

 

Anyway, I'm posting this for future reference just in case anybody else is having troubles. I was able to fix the problem by moving the File into my own webspace and iframing that. Then the Editor behaved once again. :-)
