I think I understand what behavior you desire. However, it's not entirely  
clear to me that what Opera is wrong given that your example has an  
intrinsic width of a 100% (which is overridden with 300px if I understand  
all the algorithms correctly; I probably don't).

I think that's one of the reasons it's simply gets clipped instead of  
scaled. (And clipping is a feature too, keep that in mind.)
