Was there less than two pages' worth of text in the field? (The
engine does not want to let you scroll past the last line of text, so
if there is, say, 1 1/4 pages of text, when you set the scroll to the
field height you'll see the last full page - starting 1/4 of the way
in - rather than the last quarter of a page.)
A quick and dirty way around this is to add a few returns to the end
when you populate the field, to make enough blank space at the end to
allow scrolling the full height of a page.
