This doesn't look to 'hacky' to me - maybe you could use both exit  
conditions in the 'until' and I'm not sure you need to to do the  
calculation - using just 'the formattedheight' seems to work fine:

repeat until (the vscroll of fld "Song" = the formattedHeight of fld  
"Song") or the mouseclick

though this doesn't improve the functionality at all -  the  
fomattedHeight is a reliable property, so it seems like a good
