using 2/15 build of mozilla

1) launch mozilla
2) launch editor
3) insert some weird text
4) hit spellchecker

you have to get a bunch of choices to appear in the suggested words winow,
but what was reported was that there is no scrollbar if the suggested
words are more than a page view....

please investigate
reassign to cmanske for M16

Sujay: Please supply a test word that will generate a list longer than the 
vertical size of the listbox, I tried at least 10 but couldn't generate a long 
list.
A vertical scrollbar should appear automatically, correct?
The listbox size is determined by size="8" in the xul, and no CSS attributes
are used. The contents of the listbox are filled at runtime.

The attached test file works, although there is an ugly drawing problem when
the scrollbar first appears.
I am on NT (today's build) and I am not seeing an ugly redraw problem when the 
scrollbar first appears. When/where do you see it? On what platform?
You're right, I don't see any problem at all in the test file. Why are we using
native scroll widget, though?
Sujay: We need a test word in Composer to see if it's really happening!
Yes, native for now, soon will gfx (M15)
Adding myself to Cc list.
"foo" (ironically enough!) is a good test word and generatates a long list
of suggestions.
In my 2/21 debug build, there a scrollbar automatically appears, as it should.
