Sortable items are getting dynamic css applied after scroll and messing up absolute positioning.

I am implementing some components that are "sortable"  I have a ui-sortable class and everything works fine until I scroll down the page a little bit.  After that, when I click to drag an item, it is getting some absolute height offset applied to the div (which appears tobe about the same height as my header)

Here is a screenshot of the css being injected

position:absolute; left:73.5px, top:190px; width:898px; height:110px; z-index:1000   The numbers change based where I am.  Wondering if something from widget edit mode is getting applied to my sortable elements??
