I am getting a failure of the cursor to appear near the end of text 
fields where the last lines are several lines above the bottom of the 

  Is anyone else getting this? Has it been reported? It's a long 
standing problem... still present in 2.5


create scrolling field. Insert some text text only fills 2/3rds of the 
field, if you click into the window at the end of the text... no 
cursor... if you click into the text of the last line.. no cursor, if 
you click a few lines above, you get a cursor... ok now, page several 
more paragraphs until text runs over... scroll down... now, problem 
goes away.. you can click at the end of the text... now, it return ten 
times... ten empty lines at then for field click in white space.. you 
should get a cursor between empty line... nothing appears... click 
delete(backspace) and lines are removed... the cursor is there... just 
doesn't appear...
