        Thanks for your comments, Jeff. I found that this is a problem in Chrome
        too, and that the inference that it is a webkit bug is supported by

        https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17744

        which bug is bafflingly labelled "unconfirmed", having been reported in
        March 2008.

        I am going to try the chromium-browser on my 32-bit Ubuntu box and see
        what webkit does there.
