This is interesting. When I do it from this thread, it looks like yours. Note that there's still a scroll bar for both of us, but by default, it's already scrolled to the bottom.
But when I do it from User CP, it comes up scrolled to the top. The top several lines are not actually forums, so while it works out nicely if I forum jump within a thread, if I do it from inside my User CP, sometimes I have to scroll first.
