Removing the space occupied by viewport scrollbars for the values of
'width' and 'height' seems like a pretty clear bug to me.  There are
already ways for style sheets to affect whether there are scrollbars
on the viewport, so we really shouldn't make whether there are
scrollbars on the viewport affect which style sheets are chosen.
(If we do, then we need to give the rules for how to end the
resulting infinite loops.)
