Autocomplete with scroll behaves incorrectly with combination of mouse and keyboard user input

This behavior can be seen on the demo posted on the jquery UI site: http://jqueryui.com/demos/autocomplete/#maxheight
If the user mouses over one of the items and leaves it there, and then subsequently uses the keyboard to scroll down, the presence of the mouse seems to be firing an event which causes the selection to be higher in the list than expected.
This is also the case if the mouse happens to be positioned underneath the input box (where the autocomplete UL will be placed) before any input is actually entered (which can happen randomly even if the user is using only the keyboard). So it's really a critical issue for the "scrollable results" application, though of course that's only one application of the UI autocomplete element.
This behavior is seen using Safari Version 5.0.1 (5533.17.8) and Firefox/3.5.11 on Mac OS X 10.5.
