Well, my point is that if WP was doing the right thing here and using
inline styles, then it wouldn't matter what the theme did. Inline
styles always win.

The main purpose of a theme's stylesheet is pretty much to "override"
the HTML. Stylesheets control the presentation, after all. In this
case, the height and width of "auto" is merely expressing the default
settings, and normally it'd be the correct way to do it.

Short term fix: remove those.
Long term fix: Change WP to not use width and height attributes for
resizing, but to use inline styles instead.
