[Buildbot-devel] Patch: Workaround for (broken?) browser optimization

the attached patch for buildbot 0.6.6 is a workaround for a (broken?) compiler 
optimization, which makes it remove all empty <td> cells from a table. 
Unfortunately, this also removes the possibility to style those cells using 
CSS - think 'td { border-right: 1px dashed black; }' which, AFAICT, should 
get honored by all td elements in theory, but is only applied to all 
non-empty td elements in practice.

The workaround is to make sure that there's at least a   in a <td>, so 
that there's always something which keeps the browser from optimizing the 
cell away.
