           Summary: Relative positioned block size doesnt update root layer
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 420+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh
               URL: http://soccernet.espn.go.com/origin?cameFrom=section%3Fi
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Layout and Rendering
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at opendarwin.org

If a render block is relative positioned, the root layer doesnt get the correct
size. As a result, if the browser window is too small, some of the content is

To run this test case, reduce the Safari browser window size and load the page.
A scroll bar should appear allowing the user to see the entire content. 

The original webpage (espn.com)works because espn does browser sniffing and for
Safari, it doesnt include the rel positioned div element.

The fix is most probably in RenderLayer::updateLayerPosition(). When the child
layer position gets updated, the parent layer size needs to be updated.

The bug regarding content clipping exists in IE too, but works on Firefox.
