No page scrollbar when changing "overflow" on :hover

When changing overflow from auto to visible for an element with fixed width, Safari 2.0.3 correctly hides the scrollbar onmouseover, but it doesn't create a page scrollbar.

Opera has similar problems.

To make Safari repaint the page you have to additionally change e.g. the positioning, formatting or dimensions of that element.

This looks to work correctly with the latest build of WebKit (r18692).

This bug has also been fixed in Safari 3 Beta (tested on my Mac).
