Tabbing with More Options open doesn't work in Safari

Hi Folks,

There are major functional and visual problems with v0.8.0-beta2 in  
Safari. If you open the More Options section in one tab and then open  
another tab, the visible table that starts just after the  
"extra_opt_..." fieldset is shifted up and to the left making it's  
leftmost buttons & checkboxes inaccessible. The More Options legend  
is also covered by the table although it is still active and mousing  
over it causes it to reappear in the middle of the table. Any redraw  
such as a slight change in window size brings everything back to what  
was intended. A really interesting effect can be created while the  
table is shifted by going to another application and then returning  
to Safari. This causes the buttons and checkboxes (in their correct  
positions) to be drawn over the shifted table.

I'm using Safari 2.0.4 (419.3)

I've also tried it in the latest nightly build of webkit (WebKit-SVN- 
r23922) and it is not a problem with that version.

If I can send a gif to this list, there is one below with the 1st  
screenshot showing what it looks like when you open the "Validate by  
File Upload" tab after opening the "More Options" in the "Validate by  
URI" tab. The second shows what it looks like if you leave Safari for  
another application and come back causing a redraw of the buttons,  
checkboxes and selects. This shows the offset pretty clearly  
especially with the checkboxes for "Clean up ..." and "Validate error  
pages" which have a small portion of the C and V clipped.

Thanks for all your work.
