Same thing here. I see more than two lines with default configuration
with Firefox 3.5.7, Opera 10.10 and Konqueror 4.3.5 all under Linux KDE,
all with browser defaults. The default font have an impact here.

Please note that in test
there is potentially 2 additional difficulties.

<meta name="flags" content="may" />

<meta content="If 'text-align' is set to 'justify' the user agent may
stretch spaces and/or words." name="assert">

Test passes if the width of spaces and/or characters of the first line
of "Filler Text" is larger than the second line of "Filler Text".

What if such difference is as small as 2 (or 3 or 4) pixels? How is "Joe
Schmuck" going to see/notice such width difference in blank spaces
and/or in between characters?

What if there is no difference of width? The user agent could then still
pass the test but the statement (expected result) suggests otherwise.
