BUILD: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.1) Gecko/20090616 Firefox/3.5
TEST CASE: https://litmus.mozilla.org/show_test.cgi?id=6935

When clicking on the "Change Scroll Direction" button (single triangle) for the news scroller applet on the test site provided (http://www.bseindia.com), text is overlapping.  Clicking the triangle again to scroll from right to left causes the overlapping text to disappear and it begins to scroll normally again.  I cannot reproduce this on Mac or Windows (scrolling works fine there).

STR:
1. Go to http://www.bseindia.com
2. Notice the stock ticker at the top, scrolling right to left
3. Click the single triangle button on the right to change scroll direction to left-to-right
4. Watch
5. Click the single triangle button again
6. Watch

RESULT:
Text overlaps when switching to left-to-right scrolling.
Text corrects itself when switching back to right-to-left scrolling.

EXPECTED:
Text should scroll in either direction free of glitches.
