That would be very much appreciated!

I believe the testing was done in IE6 and Chrome 10, per 
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=652941#c0

I haven't checked Trident, but for WebKit a reasonably current Chrome 
dev build (WebKit rev 545.7 (@96998)) shows the problem.

Try https://bug652941.bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=528419 for 
the testcase I was looking at.

I did mention that in my original mail...

Your tests use an auto-width table, so they're not exercising the fixed 
layout algorithm in some UAs, I would think.
