Any news on this subject?? This plugin is main element on the shop home page so this bug have big impact on users experience!
We just fixed the issue. You need to update the JCarousel plugin to get the fix.
You can also update the whole theme if you want as we have some new features and plugins added to the theme, so that you can take advantage of them i.e improved super-fast Ajax Filters that can also work on Manufacturer pages and a new Ribbons plugin.

As to the problem you reported with the JCarousel plugin.
It turned out that this is a known issue in the JCarousel jquery library that we use in the plugin.
It has been reported more than 2 years ago but has never been added to the official release.
