1) The behavior is undefined, but I think we all agree that for purposes 
of this testcase there is only one sane behavior.

2) There's already a bug for that on Firefox.

3) Fixing it involves a pretty major revamping of how abspos things work 
(or alternately a pretty major revamping of table layout, which is even 
less likely), at least if were to avoid the behavior you observe in IE. 
  It hasn't been a super-high priority, unfortunately.  :(
