Test document for drag table border issue

With ordinary tables, it's possible to resize table's left/right borders with mouse when cursor is outside the table: hover the mouse over the border, notice the pointer changes shape to "resize", press left button and drag.

However, when a table has its left side shifted (not aligned to left border of page body), and cursor is outside such table, then the press-and-drag fails, despite mouse pointer indicates that resize is possible.

The attached test file allows to test this. If cursor blinks on any empty line outside tables, then it's impossible to resize left or right border of top table with mouse (on drag attempt, cursor simply jumps into the table, instead of starting drag), but possible to resize the lower table.
