Element.getDimensions causes issues in certain conditions in Safari

Reported by jwheare | February 8th, 2009 @ 03:32 AM

As described here: http://james.wheare.org/notes/20...

If the element is position: fixed, and is inside a relatively positioned container, strange behaviour involving random unicode characters can be seen with <select> elements in Safari 3.2.1, potentially leading to a crash.

Minimal test case using code based on Element.getDimensions here: http://james.wheare.org/stuff/bu...

This is due to a bug in WebKit that's fixed in the nightly builds but it's unclear when the next version of Safari will be released.
