You are right.  After re reading, this is seems to fall under the
domain of *bottom edges being deliberatly left out of CSS
specification*.  Since there is no other content besides floats in the
parent div, the floats appear to jump out of it.  CSS2.1 specifies
that a floated parent has to expand to contain floated children so I
could float the parent (obj_bar).  However I actually like the the
thin line  better that the thick backgound bar so I got lucky here. :)
  Thanks all for your help.

Thanks for the link too,
