WTF: position: fixed and z-index on Safari

Safari seems not to respect z-indexes until after browser window is resized. Open up this file in Safari 7.0.3 on OS X.

To investigate next: what else, besides browser resize, will force the z-index layering to be correct? Modifying the style of the relevant elements (either before scrolling up or after)? Any repaint (again, either before scrolling up or after)?
