i found bug.

i have test page where use $.offset() to determine exact position on element in the page.

the bug is:

when page have a vertial scroll bar, and when I'm scrolled down I try following ofs=$('#some_element').offset(),

the screen flick in FireFox 2.0.20 but in IE6 everithing is ok.

i try to debug JavaScript (jQuery and jQuery-letest) and this bug causes on line

1: scroll down

Can we not use property names like 'subtractsBorderForOverflowNotVisible' which do not minify? thus making the library unnecessary bigger.
