In my opinion the test case is wrong according the latest CSS 2.1 CR

"Note. In CSS1, the ':active' pseudo-class was mutually exclusive with ':link'
and ':visited'. That is no longer the case. An element can be both ':visited'
and ':active' (or ':link' and ':active') and the normal cascading rules
determine which style declarations apply.

Note. Also note that in CSS1, the ':active' pseudo-class only applied to

So Webkit, Firefox and Opera correctly applied :active style to an A element,
even it is not valid link. IE fails on it.

The bug report is incorrect in my opinion. Any other comments on this case?
