Agreed. Marking as verified duplicate of 18754.
re-opening because it's not really a dup, it's a related but slightly different issue. the other bug is about quirks-mode layout. the test case in this bug is in strict mode

marking invalid. HR's are block elements, and in strict mode they get laid out just like any other block. let me know if you think we should do otherwise in strict mode, which would mean treating HR's as blocks in most cases, but as inlines if they are impacted by floaters. I don't think the CSS spec wants to get into a situation where it forces style changes based on geometry.
That leaves the open issues in bug 38370.
