Containing floats inside overflow:auto

When a block set to overflow: auto contains floats Opera and Explorer Windows don't contain the floats correctly.

I'm not sure in which version of Opera this was fixed, but recent Opera 8 betas handle it fine.
A little bit different than Firefox (better in some ways, worse in other it seems to me), but it's not anymore like in 7.54.

This effect is not seen if a width or height is applied to the containing block.

With either of these values set, the behaviour is as you would expect.
