Hi Dirk,

Not sure I completely understand the nature of this caveat, but I'll
describe the scenario that I think you're envisioning and how it might work:

1. Repeating content's nominal height is 150px
2. Overflow container's height is 100px
3. User scrolls 150px down
4. Scrollbar indicator is now at the bottom of the the overflow container
5. User scrolls an additional 1px
6. Scrollbar indicator is now at the top of the overflow container
7. The first row of pixels for the repeating content are now visible at the
bottom of the overflow container
