jQuery animations "jump" with word wrapping and constant width

Here's a simple example:

If you take out the word-wrapping with 'white-space: nowrap;', it will work properly. If you take out the constant width it will work properly.

So are you proposing that we (temporarily) set white-space: nowrap before the animation to circumvent this? I suppose that might work.

I only meant that the animation wouldn't jump, providing it was related to word wrapping. The wrong effect happens if I set word-wrap: nowrap; on .slider.

Try it out on the jsFiddle yourself!

Could you calculate the right height by duplicating the node, add it somewhere off-screen and then use getComputedStyle?

Replying to [comment:3 jstpierre@…]:

That's already what we do - it's obvious that this specific CSS property is causing problems, though. I suspect that there isn't a whole lot that we can do on our end to make this better, I'm going to have to recommend that you make the necessary CSS tweaks (before the animation begins) yourself.
