It does break as described in IE6 on win2K.

Appears to be IE6' "auto-expansion bug" at play - IE6 doesn't respect
declared dimensions.

The addition of...

* html #wrap_right, * html #wrap_left {overflow-x: hidden;}

...seems to be enough to hold it in place at my end, but can't guarantee
that that's enough.
