The menus are based on the script "Menu Magic 2" from projectseven.com. It is
known that Safari has trouble with closing the menus (
http://www.projectseven.com/support/answers.asp?id=100 a bit old though). But
there is something strange about this, at least in the reported page.

In the reported page, there is a trigger surface around the menu, that tells
the items to close when the mouse enters. This surface has zero width in
Safari, but its width doesn't span the whole menu, so the right-most menus
don't close in Firefox either (but do in Opera 9). To see the size of this
area, download the page (for example with Firefox), and put a visible border
around the div named P7TabH.

I'll add a test case that shows where Safari and Firefox render differently. It
looks like a default setting problem, where Firefox sets the height=width if
not specified (it seems), while Safari sets it to 0.

Ultimately, the bug seems to be a programming error in the reported page, as
all examples at projectseven.com seem to work well with Safari.
