Hi Gregory,
As far as I know, Scott is correct.  The next best thing is to
put a mouseup and a mouseleave handler in the field and put
'set the vscroll of me to 0' in each of those handlers.  Your
clients will still be able to scroll the field, but they will
not be able to leave it in a state of scroll.
