I'm on Chrome 6.0.458.1 dev on Win7. I've duplicated this on several of the sites (SO, MSO, as well as WA and WM). No problems with Firefox 3.6 or IE8.

No repro in the current version of Chrome (5.0.375.99).

Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, 'and what is the use of a book,' thought Alice 'without pictures or conversation?'

For the record, we don't support unreleased beta browsers.

I just switched to the stable release (6.0.472.55), and the bug is still there. –  Igal Tabachnik Sep 12 '10 at 8:17

Reproduced in Chrome 6.0.472.63, Windows 7. –  Michael Petrotta Sep 27 '10 at 19:57

I am getting the same bug on Chrome 6.0.472.62/Ubuntu 10.04.

This is really annoying... For some reason it was working fine but it's broken now. Anyone find a solution for this?
