:first-letter bug in Mozilla Firefox

In Mozilla Firefox 1.5 when you scroll the form so that it is off-screen at the top then scroll back on-screen the underscores on the first letter of each line sometimes do not re-appear again. When scrolling to the end of the form and backup again, and when the browser window is resized to a smal size it seems even more persistent. This bug is triggered by styling label:first-letter {text-decoration: underline}.

(ppknote: This bug is quite flighty, I myself saw it only the third time I tried the test page.)

The bug is better visible when you drag the scrollbar rather than using your scrollwheel.

It's much more apparent when dragging the scrollbar very slowly.
