This is a variation of the 'Guillotine' bug, and it's yet another IE
float bug. It often appears with the 'Peekaboo' bug and had me confused
for a while. One difference is that the first can happen in IE5.5 and
IE6; the second only in IE6. I have a skeleton demo that should have
been added to my bug site a looong time ago:
Basically, IE has a well known habit of enclosing wrapped floats
even without a 'clearing' element after the float. The link action
is simply toggling this incorrect behavior on and off. When it's
'off', the bottom part of the float extends out of the container,
where IE refuses to show it.
