For me -konqueror user- the floats on the "admin groups" of the node
edit  forms was always annoying. The textfields were inaccessible.
But witth the collapsible parts they becme even moer annyoing: They now
jump around on teh page when collapsed or folded out. 

This patch simply removes all the floats frolm these groups. 

I beleive theis looks and feels much better. It appears more stable on
your page. It feels more like one expects: only a single row of
collapses, instead of some odd row with columns. 

And last but not least: that part was amoungst the hardests to theme. I
think this is a good moment to get rid of them. 

Oh, and it removes quite some code/cruft from drupal.css :)
