I'm not sure aspect ratio necessarily has anything to do with it,
because I see CSS layouts all the time that break at some window
widths and not others.

Usually due to rounding when specifying column widths in units that
may not map to whole pixels.  E.g. Once IE has converted two 50%
columns to pixels, it might round the measurement up, causing a wrap.
