FixedHeader with css position fixed scroll-able parent

The layout of our site uses a css fixed header and a css fixed content div below the header with overflow: Y scrolling.

With the current implementation of FixedHeader no scroll events are captured because the main window is not scrolling. I was able to make FixedHeader work on our site by adding a hack to capture scroll events on our scrollable div but it is clearly not the right way do this long term.

From within _constructor:
$('#content').on('scroll'+this.s.namespace, DataTable.util.throttle( function () {
}, 50 ));

With this hack FixedHeader works properly through all tested scenarios.

Do you have suggestions on how this functionality could be properly integrated into the FixedHeader plugin?

Perhaps a new option called 'scrollableParent' could be added with a jQuery selector? Then the scroll and resize events could be bound to that parent instead of the window. Some changes to the _position function also appear to be necessary.
