Oddly, I'm using Omniweb 5.1b5, which use the same rendering engine as
Safari 1.2, and I only see the duplicated content very briefly, when
the browser repaints the page. And, as you said, having the whole page
visible onscreen fixes the problem.
It reminds me a bit of this bug
In very old versions of Safari there was a similar painting bug with
duplicated content. It was enough to resize the window to trigger it.
But I can't find the reference to it anymore, and that bug was fixed
since version 1.0.
I tried using different clearing techniques, but that didn't solve
The bug doesn't happen if you use absolute positioning for your sidebar.
