Scroll events fired in TableView although there is nothing to scroll

I am a bit surprised by the behaviour of the onScroll event handling of
TableView. I just printed the events I received there to standard out and
although the table does not display any scrollbars because it is large
enough to fit all content into it, I receive events as if it were scrolling
(even with the physics/inertia I would expect from a scrollbar, i.e. it
takes a while after the scroll gesture for the events to stop firing).

As an API user I would never have expected this. This makes me wonder how
useful the event handler is in the first place as I cannot use it to see if
there is actually any scrolling going on in the table. How do I do that?

This is somewhat related to a post on OTN ( if anyone wants to
know what the broader context of this is.

Best regards,
