Background image for my search box is moving when I type text into it in Internet Explorer -- must fix!

If you type enough text into my search box on this page (when viewing the page in IE 6 or 7 ...

... you'll notice that that the background image that I have specified for that text input box starts to scroll horizontally, .. which looks ridiculous.  This problem doesn't happen in Firefox, Safari, or Chrome.

Is there any way I can fix this?   Here is the CSS that I have in place for the search input field:

.searchfield {
      border:0px;
      background-image:url(../images/searchbox_bg.jpg);
      background-position:fixed;
      height:17px;
      width:86px;
      padding:0px;
      padding-left:65px;
      margin-top:5px;
      padding-top:3px;      
      }

Thanks in advance,

Might I suggest going about this a different way by

1) making a DIV to hold the input form field for your search but set the image as the background of that Div.

then have your input text field to the right of the div (paadding-left) enough to show the search word.

that should kill your headache
