RenderBlock::layoutPositionedObjects() calls setChildNeedsLayout() on the
positioned objects without passing false for the markParents flag. This is
wrong and it leads to the block (in this case, the RenderView) having its child
re-marked as needing layout after the block finished laying out its children.

While it's nice that most objects other than tables manage to paint while
needing layout, it's a condition that shouldn't occur. Perhaps this can be
asserted in some of the more popular paint() methods.

I wonder if it's possible to make a reduction that will crash builds from
before r17068. I think it should be possible.
