There are a number of bugs for this combination(s). This bug is initially just 
to gather them up -- I'll either consolidate them or use this as a tracking bug.
Will set qa to jrgm.

Eric, here's an interim list of the bugs that deal with CSS position: and 
gfx scrollbars. I'll be reviewing and possibly closing out some of these 
as (essentially) dups. 

Ian, do you know of any others of this type?

John: Not off hand. I'll bear this bug in mind.

Here's the summary of the four GFX scrollbars && CSS position:
bugs (they're not quite dups).

  bug #21476 -- {position:ABSOLUTE; overflow:SCROLL|AUTO;} && GFX
    => scrollbars don't work correctly (various problems)
  bug #28505 -- {position:FIXED; overflow:SCROLL|AUTO;} && GFX
    => scrollbars don't work correctly (various)

  bug #23806 -- {position:FIXED; overflow:SCROLL|AUTO;} && GFX
    => border styles are not applied to DIV

  bug #38131 -- The css property 'right:' is interpreted as relative to 
  the right hand edge of the window (viewport) when using GFX scrollbars, 
  but should be relative to the left hand margin of the vertical scrollbar.
bug 38131 is now duped as bug 5195

Ugh. Adding a couple of remaining anomalies (post-Eric's recent fix) 
to the list. bug 44192, bug 44298, bug 44297

I think bug 46257 is pertinent to this issue. It seems that the problem it
describes is only exhibited when the element to be scrolled is absolutely
should bug 45597 be on this list?
Depends on: 45597, 46257

or bug 47960 ?
