CellTable gets cut off at bottom of browser window; vertical scroll unavailable


I created a CellTable to which rows and columns can be added depending on the needs of the user.  However, when the table is longer than the height of the browser window, no scroll bar appears.  Honestly I would have expected the browser to do this automatically, but when I tried wrapping everything on the page in scroll bars with CSS, even the scroll bar attached to the table was grayed out, which seems to indicate that the browser doesn't even acknowledge the existence of the content being cut off at the bottom.

I tried wrapping the entire element in a ScrollPanel widget, but between requiring a specified size and the fact that if the table isn't so large, the scroll bar will still be there, that doesn't seem to be the best solution.  

This is an incredibly important aspect of this project, and I'm relatively new to GWT.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
