Auto scrolling a locked field when mouse comes to edge

I have a similar issue where I want to be able to select text in a field with traversalOn set to false. I can select the text, but I cannot copy it. It's as though the engine cannot discern there is a selection.

To clarify:
For a locked field with autohilite and traversalOn both true, the “built in” auto scrolling works the same as with an unlocked field.  I’m looking for a way to script this kind of auto scrolling with autohilite and traversalOn both false.
