On the current page, and during an active page load the tab panel will scroll to the top. Current page load should not have anything to do with ones ability to use this menu to switch or open tabs.
1. Open a bunch of sites
2. Open a site that has a hefty page load; http://wsj.com
2. During page load, scroll to bottom of tab panel
AR: Automatically scrolled to to top once the current page is done loading
ER: Tab panel retains positioning regardless of current pages activity

Is this a panning performance issue? bug 695448? or is it more than that?

The panel is just scrolled to the top if you have multiple tabs open. So, if one opens the tab panel during a load, they would have trouble reaching the bottom to hit the new tab button, as the panel keeps pushing back to the top.
This will be fixed with the new design. The new tab will be visible always and not be a part of the list.

This patch solves it by looking into what tab was changed, and changing that particular tab's values in the list.
