Yes, that is the problem I would like to see addressed.

I don't know what you mean. When the height is not specified, I still  
see the bottom margin. the margins increase the height of the  
container. If you mean that the same phenomenon occurs when  
overflowing in the vertical instead of the horizontal, then sure,  
that is no surprise.

The other 3 margins affect the size of the pane that is being  
scrolled. I would like to see the 4th margin do the same.
