meta-box-sortables min-height causes display issues

The problem is in wp-admin/css/wp-admin(.dev).css:

.postbox-container .meta-box-sortables {
	min-height: 300px;

It was added as part of [10641], which was in relation to dashboard widgets, but it seems to affect more than dashboard widgets. I'm not sure it's needed at all anymore, but if it is, maybe we can make it more specific?

.dashboard-widgets-wrap .postbox-container .meta-box-sortables {
	min-height: 300px;

I came across this issue because I use meta boxes on the admin pages of many of my plugins. If an admin box doesn't have much content though, there is a funny space underneath it: http://s1187.photobucket.com/albums/z397/aarondcampbell/?action=view&current=spacing-issue.png

If you try to move the User Fields box from the screenshot closer under, doesn't the space go away?

You are not supposed to have two metabox sets under each other.

Without the min-height, you wouldn't be able to drag a metabox to an empty set.
