[Bug 1008717] Re: Ubiquity displays scrollbars inside of slideshow

A recent screenshot would be nice to see. This bug loves to pop up
unexpectedly, but I could have sworn it went away with Precise. (At any
rate, overlay scrollbars should solve this on their own, so I'm curious
that they aren't here).

Did you happen to open and close the Details pane? I have only seen it
change the window height so the slideshow stays as it is, but maybe
something odd happened.

I can add overflow:hidden to the body element in the slideshow and that
should handle its part in this. I'm worried it could cause something
unexpected, though, since Webkit is a fickle beast and I'm not sure how
the the webview's resizing works right now. Okay if I make that change
early on for Ubuntu R?
