Gecko has select.size limited to non-negative numbers greater than zero since
nearly 10 months now but we recently got three bug reports that let us think
this change wasn't web compatible.

Currently, select.size works this way for other vendors:
- no limitation: Firefox 3.6, Chrome 11, Opera 11 and Webkit trunk ;
- limited to non-negative numbers: IE6 and IE9 (I assume 7 and 8 too) ;
- limited to non-negative numbers greater than zero: Firefox 4.

Given that the current specs state isn't web compatible and IE6/9 have
select.size limited to non-negative numbers, we can probably have select.size
limited to non-negative numbers instead of non-negative numbers greater than
zero.

For information. the tree Gecko bugs:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=639175 (issue with Yahoo Answers)
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=640636 (issue with jQuery)
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=640800 (no website involved)

It goes without saying that these three bugs were involving select.size=0.
