I don't see this when refreshing this bug page using Safari 3 Public Beta v.
3.0.3 (522.12.1) with a local debug build of WebKit r25465 on Mac OS X 10.4.10
(8R218).  Which version(s) of Safari/WebKit have you tested this with?

Also, how are you refreshing the page?  Cmd-R?  Hitting the "reload" button in
the browser?  Selecting "Reload Page" from the "View" menu?  Hitting Cmd-L,
then hitting Enter?  Note that ONLY the last action will move the page to the
top when the page reloads (for me).  (If you think this is a bug, please file a
new bug for this issue.)

Did you happen to test using a page with frames?  If so, that may be Bug 10223.
