I followed the steps you specified but unfortunately I was not able to observe the unwanted behavior because the detail page was displayed in the same window (I tested it under IE 7 and FireFox 3.x).
Nevertheless, I think that the approach presented in the following forum post
will help you scroll the page to the top after an ajax request finishes execution. I hope that this is feasible solution for your case.
