Go to http://www.jsonline.com/sports/buck/ Notice the positioning of the sidebar "Bucks, NBA Game Tracker" Click on the "Go to Story" link, and then hit Alt+Left arrow to go back in histroy when that page loads. Notice the new positioning of the sidebar, it's different now.
More info: 1. I am using January 6, 2003's build 2. Sometimes reload helps, sometimes it doesn't 3. Clicking on a link outside the site and coming back doesn't seem to create the problem. You have to click on one of the Bucks story links and then come back to see the problem. Even then it doesn't always seem to happen on every link. Perhaps it depends on the positioning of the "Game tracker" sidebar in the new page. 4. Turning of the memory and disk cache doesn't help fix the problem
Bernd on IRC said he saw the problem too.
Also note, sometimes force-reload fixes the page, sometimes it doesn't
It looks like the sidebar is a table, nested inside another table.

Created attachment 111276 [details] Screenshot #2. Another type of corruption, with sidebar above rest of page content
Aha, I've found that just reloading the page can make that sidebar move around.
Summary: Click on link, go back to page. It looks different now. → Table moves when page is reloaded
Created attachment 111307 [details] testcase reproduced with linux trunk build 20030111. images from the URL are <div>s. the table with the green <div> extends into the second column of the parent table.
But isn't the original bug report an incremental reflow bug, where a page displays differently when loaded originally? We have some quirks for placement of tables near floats. This testcase might just be demonstrating one, although I'm not sure.
indeed. with the URL, changing font size fixes layout (reloading the page never fixed it for me), but that doesn't work with the testcase. I made the testcase based on the initial layout. I'll see if I can come up with a testcase that also exhibits the incremental reflow problem.
Created attachment 111313 [details] testcase with reflow problem this is similar to the first testcase but fixes itself if you increase font size and stays fixed even if you then decrease the font size back to normal. However, if you then decrease it again, the bug shows up again and stays even if you increase font size back to normal.
Comment on attachment 111313 [details] testcase with reflow problem wrong testcase, argh
