I've used scrollIntoView before, and now don't understand why this is behaving the way it is.

I do a scrollIntoView for a row in a table in a div.  The div has style overflow:auto.   When I do the scrollIntoView it scrolls the row up to the top of the div....but then it also scrolls the div up to the top of the browser page display (IE7).  

I've got other scrollIntoView in the same app that don't scroll the div to the top of the page, and I can't see any particular differences in the code and html.

I'm wondering if this is a problem that anyone might be familiar with...any help with it would be appreciated.
