As you can see on the screenshot I sent, the lightbox is not placed on 
the center of browser's window.
In fact the lightbox div is well placed in the center of the overlay 
div. The problem is that the overlay div is placed on the upper left 
corner of the seaside component which called it. That's why on my 
screenshot you can see the transparent black background of the overlay 
div not beginning at the upper left corner of my browser's window but 
somewhere else in this same window.
The script method on the SULightbox object normally get the window 
dimension and nothing else, so I do not understand why I get such a 

I take the last version of seaside and scriptaculous last friday on the 
cincom public repository.
