border all the way around as expected.

I wonder if this is a rounding error of some kind.  In the DOM inspector I see:

border-bottom-width: 1.42857px.

My first nieve guess would be that this is a rounding error.  If the ximian
folks are blindly using keith's patch, which they might be, it computes DPI
using a different method which would account for the difference.
