Using internal link triggers load event

Explorer Mac and Safari also trigger the onload event when you use an internal anchor to jump to. The jump is executed time and again.

(ppknote: This bug is closely related to Setting location.hash to the same value twice causes reload, but it's not quite the same.)

I've come up against this one on my site
I use javascript to jump to a photo on a page when onload is called. Without it the jump does not occur in windows IE but with it I have the problem in Safari (and presumably MAC IE).
Any workaround been devised since the original posting here?
