      Platform[s] : Solaris
      Specification excerpt:
      ======================
      --------- J2SE API spec v.1.5 ---------
      ...
      java.awt.ScrollPane:
      ==================
      public void setScrollPosition(Point p)
      Scrolls to the specified position within the child component. A call to this method is only valid if the scroll pane contains a child and the specified position is within legal scrolling bounds of the child. Specifying a position outside of the legal scrolling bounds of the child will scroll to the closest legal position. Legal bounds are defined to be the rectangle: x = 0, y = 0, width = (child width - view port width), height = (child height - view port height). This is a convenience method which interfaces with the Adjustable objects which represent the state of the scrollbars.

      Parameters:
          p - the Point representing the position to scroll to

      java.awt.ScrollPane:
      ==================
      public Point getScrollPosition()
      Returns the current x,y position within the child which is displayed at the 0,0 location of the scrolled panel's view port. This is a convenience method which interfaces with the adjustable objects which represent the state of the scrollbars.

      Returns:
          the coordinate position for the current scroll position
      Throws:
         NullPointerException - if the scrollpane does not contain a child

      java.awt.Toolkit
      ==============
      Many GUI operations may be performed asynchronously. This means that if you set the state of a component, and then immediately query the state, the returned value may not yet reflect the requested change. This includes, but is not limited to:

          Scrolling to a specified position.
          For example, calling ScrollPane.setScrollPosition and then getScrollPosition may return an incorrect value if the original request has not yet been processed.

          ...

      Problem description
      ===================
      Sometimes the method

          java.awt.ScrollPane.getScrollPosition()

      returns the wrong position, not just the one that has been set before.

      "Sometimes" means if we call setScrollPosition multiple times in rapid succession.
      Please see the demo.
      Note that this is an intermittently error -- thus may be you'll have to run this demo
      several times to reproduce it. Please use the Solaris platform, I couldn't reproduce
      it under the Linux.

      May be it will be interesting: please note the output of the getScrollPosition() in the demo's output: java.awt.Point[x=12,y=11]
      Not java.awt.Point[x=11,y=11] or java.awt.Point[x=10,y=10]...

      Minimized test:
      ===============
      ------- J.java -------
      import java.awt.*;

      public class J {
          public static void main(String[] args) {

              // some GUI preparatory stuff
              Frame frame = new Frame();
              frame.setBounds(100, 100, 300, 300);
              ScrollPane sp = new ScrollPane(ScrollPane.SCROLLBARS_ALWAYS);
              Canvas canvas = new Canvas();
              canvas.setSize(500, 500);
              sp.add(canvas);
              frame.add("Center", sp);
              frame.setVisible(true);

              // the test itself
              for (int i=1; i<100; i++) {
                  Point p = new Point(i, i);
                  sp.setScrollPosition(p);

                  // waiting till the next scroll position "arrives"
                  while ( !p.equals(sp.getScrollPosition()) ) {
                      try {
                          Thread.sleep(1000);
                      } catch (InterruptedException e) {
                          e.printStackTrace();
                          System.exit(1);
                      }
                      System.out.println("set position : "+p);
                      System.out.println("get position : "+sp.getScrollPosition());
                      System.out.println("waiting...");
                  }
              }
              frame.dispose();
              System.out.println("PASSED");
          }
      }
