This seems to relate to the use of "position: relative" with "left" or "top" set to (or inherited as) "auto". In Safari the element seems to return arbitrary values for offsetTop and offsetLeft. Using the Safari Web Inspector to disable "position: relative" on <li> for the website in the previous comment, while breaking the image number label, fixes the scrolling issue.
