Float following header is buggy

When a floating box appears directly after a header in Mozilla, the very first line of text after the float doesn't obey the float but is rendered right through the floating box.
The first floating box on a page is never affected by this bug, though.

Test page. Workaround is not included.

Using FireFox 1.0 this bug fixes itself immediatly after de- or in-creasing text size. And perhaps by otherwise causeing reflow.

Is there a bug filed in bugzilla about this?

I have no idea. I find Bugzilla to be completely unworkable, so I've given up searching and filing bugs.

You seem to have Bugzilla experience, though, judging by the comments you left, so I guess that if you can't find a bug report it probably isn't there.
