Problem with finding dimensions of hidden elements

Reported by Martin Lie | August 28th, 2008 @ 11:36 PM | in 1.7

In the getDimensions method you make an attempt at discovering the dimensions of hidden elements (i.e. display: none) by making them absolute, invisible and unhiding them. The invisible/unhide-approach makes sense, but making the hidden element absolute also makes it shrinkwrap its contents (say, if it's a div - at least on the few browsers I tested) and the width you then get is possibly much smaller than if it wasn't made absolute.

For a demonstration, see the attachment of issue #310 (the blue-bordered div).
