What does happen on other browsers? I know firefox does not scroll it (just
tested), but maybe Opera and IE are good to be tested too.

Particularly speaking, I do not think it should scroll. Btw, it is a similar
case to if user uses the find-in-page feature, and the word is offscreen the
scrolling=no iframe. But it is a valid discussion, I think ...
