With the default Mac OS X theme Firelight, at least on Leopard, if a website has a text box which allows 4 lines of text to be written without scrolling, the scroll bar (blue ball, really) disappears. If this is further shrunk to only 3 lines of text, the scroll arrows and scroll bar disappear, but the background bar is still visible.

Scrolling still works, using the scroll wheel allows scrolling, and the user can still click and drag where the scroll bar should be.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make a website with <textarea cols="50" rows="2" name="comment"></textarea>
2. Type text until scrolling would be required.
3. Witness the chaos!!!

Note: rows="3" will show scroll arrows but not the bar.
Actual Results:  
No scroll bar or scroll arrows. Chaos!

Expected Results:  
Produced smaller versions of the arrows and/or the scroll bar.

I've tested this with a different theme on OS X (classic compact, to be exact), and it handles the text box correctly, so it is truly a problem with the default Firelight theme.

Here's a screenshot.

I've confirmed this doesn't happen on Windows or Linux, but I haven't
tried other styles than the default on OS X.  I tested on OS X 10.5.3.
