I'd guess that this comes from (inconsistently) assuming the borders to apply
to the table wrapper box instead of the table box.  In other words, I'd guess
that the WebKit behaviour is simply a bug.  Though it is a bit surprising that
two layout engines would have such a bug; can you confirm that you really mean
Presto, or do you mean the Chromium/Blink version of Opera?
