User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050606 Camino/0.8+
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050606 Camino/0.8+

When I scroll a page in Camino with the arrow keys on my computer the hard disk
constantly works. The hard disk noice stops immediately when I release the key.
This happends even if I scroll down at the end of the page. Activity monitor
shows that  I have more than 100 MB of free RAM.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Camino
2. Make sure that the hard disk isn't working
2. Press the down key on the keyboard
3. Listen to the hard disk working

Actual Results:  
The hard makes a noise as if searching or moving the drive head

Expected Results:  
The hard disk should stay silent

I started noticing the same behaviour in Safari, so I guess this problem lies
outside the realm of Camino.
