jQuery resizable bug in Opera

I'm experiencing a problem with the jQuery resizable functionality in Opera only, which is odd.  Usually its IE that gives the problems.  

What I'm experiencing is that during the resize operation, the div tag suddenly increases it's height by a large amount.  After I noticed the problem was occuring in my application I ported it over to this simple example that I have posted here to see if in the most basic circumstance the problem was still occuring, and it is.  I wondered if it was a problem with having draggable and resizable applied to the same div tag, but the problem still occurs when just resizable is applied.

Can someone please:

Verify that this same thing is happening when you run the code below.

Identify a work around that I might be able to implement to get this to work.
