The tests:
http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/20101001/html4/overflow-003.htm
http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/20101001/html4/overflow-004.htm

http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/20101001/xhtml1/overflow-005.xht
are incorrect because they say that "PASS PASS" should be in the
bottom right corner of the scrolled box.  However, whether the text
is in the bottom right, bottom left, bottom middle, or split between
lines (as it is in Firefox on Linux) depends on the metrics of the
default font.  The test should be restructured or the pass condition
revised appropriately.
