Wrong width for a box with overflow:auto and a negative margin, next to a float

A box with no specified width, overflow:auto, and next to a right float has the width "limited" by the float. When adding to it a negative left margin, in Opera the width is not stretched correctly.

The bug affects this very same site, in the pages with users comments. These have overflow:auto and result too narrow in Opera (except those down along the page, after the right column has finished.) Here the right floated column is moved outside the container with a negative right margin, but this doesn't prevent the bug to show up.
