"Attempting to get a text input field to expand to fill the browser in a nested table (table-layout: fixed) will cause the input field to overflow its surrounding table cell. Occurs with select boxes as well.

I can confirm that this bug is still valid on 24 june 2006 :)
The test case works now (matches Firefox 188.8.131.52 rendering). Probably fixed by one of Mitz's recent table layout fixes.
Tested with a locally-built debug build of WebKit r19202 with Safari 2.0.4 (419.3) on Mac OS X 10.4.8 (8L127).
I posted a comment to the quirksmode bugreport, but it's been filtered until the author clears it.
