Peter - thanks for the idea.  I've tried it along with a few variations 
on it but unfortunately to no avail.  I can see it getting trapped but 
for some reason my script editor window always jumps about 5 or 6 lines 
when I scroll one notch using the mouse wheel.  Any ideas?  I'm 
experimenting with a script window of about 3000 lines.
