We're getting the correct reflow hint for the table; the table is just not reflowing for some reason....
This broke between 2003-08-13-05 and 2003-08-14-22. Looking at the checkin range, bug 198506 seems like the most likely culprit, and indeed backing out that patch fixes the problem here.
mkaply told me that patch broke horizontal resizing of tables in the editor as well -- didn't get a chance to file a bug, but it's probably the same issue.
At a guess, the incremental reflow now just reflows the kids at the table's old width, then decides there's no reason to change the width of the table.... But this is based on a total of about 200 seconds of looking at nsTableFrame::Reflow, so take it with a grain of salt.
once this gets fixed, please remember to check if we get back the problem with xml prettyprinting.

Comment on attachment 133576 [details] [diff] [review] brute force patch Are there some other related patches that should go in as well?
hopefully not, at least I am not aware of any patch that should also go in.
