When you attempt to use the DOM to append an element into another element whose "overflow: scroll" or "overflow: auto", weird weird stuff occurs. First of all, the element doesn't actually get inserted into the parent element... it gets inserted into the region which contains the parent's scrollbars! Also, the new element isn't painted immediately (see bug #33953). Finally, using the parent's scrollbars has no effect on the new element.. it just sits there as if it had "position: fixed".
