I'm on digest so ignore me if this has already been answered.

Overflow isn't your problem. There's a new beta version available(1) 
which supports min/max width & height. You can read more about that and 
an interesting review from 456 Berea Street(2). If you choose to 
download, then you will need to hide the #content height declaration 
from IE7, and your best bet is probably conditional comments. 
Incidentally, the reason it is currently failing is due to the fact your 
current beta version (or at least betas prior to the March 20 release) 
implement height in the same way more standards compliant browsers do. 
IE7 will honour a fixed dimension (such as pixels or ems) and will not 
expand past this as you've discovered(3). There is however a workaround 
- feed it a percentage height and all will be well.

<!--[if IE 7]>
#content {height: 1%;}
<![endif]-->

However, personally I would just get the newer release and forget about it.
