- Redraw issue with IE select element

whether the following web snippet has the same
artifact on IE7 or 8 as it does on my Win XP Pro IE 6:
<div style='border:1px solid red;height:95;width:120'><select
If I alter IE's height or width, then the select element
will flash. Presumably it attempts to repaint itself
realizes that it can't enlarge its size, and then return
(resulting in a flash) to its original size. In any case,
I'd like to find out if I can expect this (flashy) behaviour
in future versions of IE or whether it was considered a
bug and fixed up.

PS. With FF this behaviour does not occur.
The select element is anyway sized to match the the
enclosing element (so there may be only a partially
showing last line in the select element) presumably
eliminating some repaint issues.
PPS. Though I made a comparison to FF, the app
I'm working on is meant for an IE only platform.
