patch with reftests
Do we already have tests for svg, symbol, pattern and foreignObject? If not, can you rename the test to something like 'overflow-01.svg' and test each of those in its own little section of the screen?
I think this is a bad idea, since it gets along really badly with the overflow-x/overflow-y split.
David sent an email about this to www-svg:
roc, does comment 3 change your mind on this?
David's perfectly right. We should treat 'auto' as 'hidden'.

Goodness, my Bugzilla search-fu for existing bugs is weak. :-)
I'm sad to say that David's mail never got a reply, nor did it become a tracked issue. I will bring it up again.
