position() rounds off the values under WebKit

I have an element with absolute positioning. The Chrome element inspector is showing that its X-axis position is 10.1px, like it's supposed to be, but the value that I get from position() is always rounded to the nearest integer. Affected browsers:

Chrome 10.0.648.151

Safari 5.0.4

The same code on Firefox 3.6.15 returns floating-point numbers. This might be a WebKit bug.

I forgot - here's a test case to demonstrate this behavior:

If anybody is reading this who has Opera or IE, would you mind posting the results?

This is expected behaviour - jQuery intentionally coerces css values into pixel integers

If it's expected, then it should be done consistently. Like I said: in Firefox I get a float, in WebKit I get an integer.
