[meta] ::selection bugs

Our :-moz-selection code has some serious bugs on the following test cases:

The first is a style system bug, the second is a problem with :focus (at a
guess) and the third is a painting bug (as you hover over the element, the
element flickers to an unselected state for no apparent reason).

These issues, along with the pseudo-elements '::' parser issue, need to be
resolved before we change the '-moz-selection' name to 'selection'.

Separate bugs should probably be filed for these issues when someone considers
fixing them.

the third seams to be fixed for me, the second is the related bug...
As I reported elsewere ( bug 183646 comment 5 ) these test cases don't work anymore.

If someone can confirm this I can remake the test cases.

Another testcase:

Konqueror does correctly show green background but in Firefox it turns blue when

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040805 Firefox/0.9.1+
Flags: blocking-aviary1.0?
Please not that W3C test cases can't be used directly, since Mozilla only
supports '::-moz-selection' for reasons that may be obvious and doesn't yet
support '::selection', which is used in the W3C test cases.

The Mozilla equivalent of that test case can be found on the "personal" test
suite of Ian Hickson were it appears that Mozilla supports it correctly:
