yes, this is also one of the mentioned solutions i do not prefer, so we
would have always a scrollbar in navigation frame!

of course this is not a problem at all, but

 - it looks ugly
 - it wastes spaces, especially in the navigation frame

but it is also a more 'cleaner' and smaller solution ... i don't know
