Steps to reproduce:

I have created multiple elements, which make use of "overflow-y: auto" in order to add a scrollbar once the content becomes vertically larger than the container. I added bottom padding to this to make sure the content didn't touch an element which overlaps it since it has a fixed position.

I found this question on StackOverflow after searching around, with the exact same issue occurring in Firefox:

A user there claims to have reported it in November 2012, but the issue is still there for me.

Actual results:

My content still gets overlapped by the fixed element, because the padding doesn't get rendered to fill the extra height of that element.

Expected results:

The padding should have been rendered at the bottom of the scroll-able element, I'm assuming this may happen with top, left and right padding also (based on vertical or horizontal scrolling).
