This seems to be caused by the :target:before rule in /skins/Timeless/resources/screen-desktop.less; specifically its height and margin properties. Setting height to auto and margin to 0 seems to fix the references list, but I'm not sure what that could be breaking, if anything. Still, we'll probably want a more precise fix and maybe we don't even want to touch the offending CSS rule.
