From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC; en-US; rv:1.0rc1) Gecko/20020424
BuildID:    2002042405

If you have windows or other elements that are always floating on top of other
applications, and these are overlapping the Mozilla window, the overlapping
parts are brought with the mozilla window as part of it.
The overlapping applications do still function correctly.

In this case the always floating elements are from:
-- Dragthing 4.2 (running programs)
-- Mail Watcher 2.7 (mailboxes to check)
-- Control Strip

the problem is !!!ONLY!!! present if you scroll the page by using either the
arrow keys or the scrollbar arrows.

the problem is present when scrolling in all directions.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. bring the page display under the floating elements
2. scroll the page

Actual Results:  see attachments

Expected Results:  the page should render without any part of the floating elements

workarounds : 
1) collapse the window - then bring it to full view again.
2) don't have floating elements over the page-display
3) scroll a page at a time

might be related to bug #121713 ???
part of the behaviour as seen in that bug is the same as seen in this bug: when
Screen Catcher has done it's job and the save-dialog is gone, the part of the
page that laid under the save-dialog is displayed correctly.
