Some successive lines of text on these web-pages appear superimposed on each other.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to one of these web-pages.
2. Look at text.

Actual Results:  
Some lines of text appear superimposed on each other.

Expected Results:  
The lines should be separated vertically.

Operating system: Mac 10.3.8. Classic theme.

This also happens with build 20050213, but I am not using this one because it is
impossible to read the right-hand end of the lines in the BugZilla search
results. I am reporting that separately.

The pages display correctly in Internet Explorer, but with lines superimposed
(as in Mozilla) in Safari.
PS: Please modify remark in 'Additional Information' about an additional fault
in Build 2005021309 concerning the search results in BugZilla: I have just tried
it again, and the fault (in the BugZilla search results) seems to be sporadic:
it is not apparent, now that I have closed and restarted Mozilaa 2005021309, but
I have observed it several times in the last few days. I am therefore not
reporting it as a separate bug.
I see overlapping content at

Forcing a reflow fixes it.

Seems fixed by reflow branch landing
There are no longer any overlapping lines when using SeaMonkey 1.0.6.
