[docs] [issue10622] WebKit browsers show superfluous scrollbars in html docs

New submission from Davide Rizzo <sorcio at gmail.com>:

Some WebKit browsers show a superflous scrollbar on the right side of the <pre> boxes in the Sphinx generated html docs.

For example:
taken on Chrome 7 on Windows.

I believe that the cause of the behaviour is a bug in the WebKit engine. If that's the case, adding "overflow-y: hidden" to the <pre> css style would fix the issue.
"overflow-y" is not standard css, but it is understood by the affected browsers, looks ok on other modern browsers and is just ignored on older releases.

The provided patch has been tested on all major Windows browsers.
