AccordionLayoutContainer scrolling problem (IE only)
I have some ContentPanels inside an AccordionLayoutContainer. When the text in one of the ContentPanels is long enough to need a horizontal scrollbar, if I move the mouse over the text it causes the ContentPanel to grow continuously to the bottom of the page, pushing anything below it off the page. This happens in IE, but not in Firefox.
I have not seen this reported for GXT, but saw it for EXT here: http://www.sencha.com/forum/showthread.php?230978, but I don't see that it was fixed anywhere. Can you please let me know the status? Thanks.
