Can you please explain what you mean by the "history state is out of date"?
Comment 3 Darin Fisher (:fishd, Google) 2009-11-04 23:21:46 PST
The frame's current scroll offset is a property of HistoryItem.  However that field is only updated when HistoryController::saveDocumentAndScrollState() is called, which does not ordinarily happen when a frame scrolls.

Chromium needs a way to know when the scroll offset for any frame has changed, so that it can schedule a call to saveDocumentAndScrollState().  Our objective is to use this as a signal to save session information for Chromium's session restore feature.
