If you load your content into one of the iPad emulators does is it broken there too?
I'm looking for a way to check this but so far the emulators that I have tried viewing Webhelp output in seem to have no trouble with scrolling.

Here is an example:

The first part of that address is the emulator, the portion after the “url=” is a link to our online version of the XMetaL Developer Programmers Guide, which was generated using the Webhelp output from XMetaL Author Enterprise 6.0.

If your content is broken when viewing there then I might have something to work with.
If your content looks OK then I guess that emulator doesn't properly emulate the limited functionality of a real iPad.

If you can find another emulator that properly mimics this broken scrolling behavior that would help.
Also, have you contacted Apple to see if they are working on a solution?
