Scroll a field to a specified line number

This is an odd one, and I hope that it is a bug. When I try to scroll an ordinary text field to a specified line number it overshoots, and if I set the field to have list behaviour it overshoots by even more.
Here's a simple recipe. New stack with a field and a button. Button script is this:
put empty into fld 1
repeat with i = 1 to 100
put i & return after fld 1
set the vScroll of fld 1 to (60 * the effective textHeight of fld 1)
Clicking the button takes me to line 65, and when I set the list behaviour to true the button scrolls me to line 69.
I would love a script that works, and this a big, right?
