Just a passing thought. I've seen just the symptoms you talk about on all sorts of browsers if the text size is increased (or a large minimum text size is chosen). It's not a problem with the browser but the CSS specifying absolute sizes for divs, etc..

Unfortunately, this version still renders some pages horribly. I
know that Mozilla and Firefox on Windows, and even Firefox (vanilla
from renders these correctly on Linux:

For that site, text is rendered on top of itself and the menu in the
upper left is messed up.

I see only one obvious imperfection in how my Mozilla renders this page: the "Search" button in the upper-left is misaligned w.r.t. the text field to which it presumably applies. It is shifted upward several pixesl--about one third of the button's and the field's height. Its horizontal placement appears correct--it abuts the text field on its right precisely.

I see exactly the same thing in Firefox.

This page appears to render perfectly in both Mozilla 1.7.5 and in Firefox.

For the Travelocity site, notice the link overlaying the "Search
flights" button. Things get really screwed when I: 1. select
"Minors" equal to some number >0, 2. then the "Minor ages at time of
travel" drop-down is overlayed by a link, so it cannot be used.

I cannot replicate this (mis-) behavior either in Mozilla or Firefox.

Anyone else notice these rendering problems on their Suse 9.1
installations? I am using 32-bit.

I, too, am using x86 (32-bit) Linux. You could try getting the 1.7.5 tarball. Installing won't interfere with anything else on your system (nor will it integrate with menus, say, or MIME or file-extension mappings), so you can easily experiment and then either toss it or make it your default browser, as I do.
