Datalist loses page position on postback...

I have a datalist in my ASP.Net webform.  It is inside
a <div> with style="OVERFLOW: auto; to create a scrollable
area when the datalist is too large for the page.

Within the datalist I have a SelectedItemTemplate for displaying
additional information about the row.

When I select an item, the additional information is displayed
correctly, but on postback the datalist always goes back to the
top of the list.  You have to scroll down to see the item you selected.

I have smartNavigation set to true for the page but it doesn't
seem to affect it.

Help!  HTML code posted below:

<%@ Register TagPrefix="custom" Namespace="CustomControlLibrary.DJJ.DotNet.CustomControl" Assembly="CustomControlLibrary" %>
<%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" Codebehind="DetentionDatalistTest.aspx.vb" Inherits="JJISBusinessProcess.DetentionDatalistTest" smartNavigation="true"%>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="cc2" Namespace="RealGrid" Assembly="RealGrid" %>
