IE6 CSS-Crash Oct 22 2003 12:44PM

Hi,
the following HTML/JS/CSS-Code crashes IE6 immediately through a
combination of:
1. textarea in table in div
2. css:overflow-y:hidden
3. changing the scrollbar-base-color
4. moving the div

I think IE tries to move the native OS-scrollbar-widget, which is not in
place.

If point 3 is removed, the page works fine.
