Default img maps work on 8700 but not on 8800 browser

Hi,

I'm trying to view the following html in my blackberry browser.

<html><body>
<map name="jiramap">
<area shape="rect" href="product.html" coords="0,0,50,20"> </area>
<area shape="rect" href="product.html" coords="20,0,70,20"> </area>
<area shape="rect" href="product.html" coords="0,10,50,30"> </area>
<area shape="rect" href="product.html" coords="20,10,70,30"> </area>
</map>
<img src="http jira.hubbub.com.au/images/jira_logo_small.gif" alt="jira" usemap="#jiramap"> </img> (NOTE: please add :// to img src - the forum wouldn't let me post a link)
</body></html>

When I open it in a BB 8703e browser, it works as expected - I can scroll to the 4 rectangles. However, on a BB 8830, when I scroll the wheel, I can get to only 1 or 2 of the 4 rectangles. Does anybody know why this is happening?

Thanks
-Ben

Default workaround

I found that one workaround is changing the shapes so that no 2 shapes have the same x or y coordinates :
<map name="jiramap">
<area shape="rect" href="product.html" coords="0,0,50,20"> </area>
<area shape="rect" href="product.html" coords="20,1,70,21"> </area>
<area shape="rect" href="product.html" coords="1,10,51,30"> </area>
<area shape="rect" href="product.html" coords="21,11,71,31"> </area>
</map>

This still doesn't work as well or as intuitively as on the 8700. On the 8800 you have to scroll the wheel sideways to scroll between shapes, and if you scroll the wheel up, the selection jumps off the image.
