Logout link obscured in header nav for users with long email addresses.

On the rubygems.org main site, long email addresses will cause the logout link in the header to become obscured behind the "Search gems..." input field. A possible solution is removing height: 25px; from the .nav ul style declaration, though I haven't investigated whether this style is necessary elsewhere in the site. Tested in Firefox 3.6.3 Mac and PC as well as the most recent Webkit nightly. Screenshots of the before and after as well as the style declaration in Firebug have been attached.

    There's a patch or two out for this already, I just haven't had a chance yet to test it. I'll keep this thread in mind when I get to merging it and resolve it once deployed. Thanks!

    This should be fixed now, if you're still seeing it let me know.
