What should be the height of the column-rule when the (last) column  
doesn't have enough (in-flow) content to fill the column?
Gecko has very recently implemented column-rule in a way that the rule  
only stretches the height of the content of the (last) column, whereas  
WebKit always stretches the rule to the height of the column.
I don't think there are any other implementations out there, but I  
could be wrong.

http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-multicol/#column4 could be interpreted as  
validating what Gecko does, particularly:
> Column rules are only drawn between columns that have content in the  
> normal
> flow

With my designer hat on, the WebKit implementation seems more intuitive.
