.position().left incorrect in Chromium (possibly webkit)

Problem: Getting the position of a centered img element returns an incorrect .left in chrome (haven't tested other webkit browsers).

see for a stripped down version of the bug I'm seeing (and then resize the window) for an example. You'll notice a red box show up once you resize the window - in IE and FF, this red box is centered over the top of the image, in Chrome, the red box is all the way to the left - this is because position().left is returning "10".

note: I was hopeful that would solve the problem, however I implemented that changelist on a different (non stripped) test and the problem was still there.

note2: I've also attached a zip which contains the example files from

Confirmed in Chrome 8 with 1.4.4-git, the image has:

left: 0px

but the correct value can be found in the computed styles as the margin-left value

This issue appears to be fixed in later versions of Chrome and Safari, even against jQuery 1.3.2. If this issue persists, please comment on this ticket with a reduced test case and we can investigate it further.
