Actually what I've found out is that after the page is loaded 
(contentpane still render improperly) and subsequently I resize FF 
window, the contentpanes suddenly render just fine. It looks like dojo 
takes notice of window being resized and acts accordingly. How to force 
it to get it right at first try?
