I have noticed that since the complex scripts change, if you right-align an 
image in a cell and it exceeds the bounds of the cell, it will start expanding 
in the opposite direction as opposed to staying locked to the right side. Is 
this behaviour correct? I have attached two PDF's showing this with one run on 
trunk and one using code from before the patch.

"Once scaled, the reference-area
is aligned with respect to the viewport-area
using the text-align and
traits. If it is too large for the viewport-area,
the graphic is aligned as if it would fit and the overflow
trait controls the clipping, scroll bars, etc."

I did also notice that negative start-indent values are allowed under blocks, 
but I am not sure if this is relevant.

This is primarily about clarifying which is correct as I would have presumed 
that if something is right aligned and it exceeds it's parents bounds, it will 
overflow in the direction it was assigned.
