Calling stop(true, true) on an effect will change absolute positioning from the affected element

Blocked by: Blocking:

When stopping an effect with stop(true, true), one would would expect the effect going to the end of the values, and keeping everything from the beginning, only changing some values to their end value. But the positioning from the box changes also. It goes even further than this example; if I declare a absolute positioning, with a bottom-value, the stop(true, true) part will actually change my bottom positioning to a top positioning!
