User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

When the recipients list has scrollbars at the side (that is several recipients
have been added to make these visible) it is possible to scroll the recipients
list when the mouse is over the Subject input field or in From field.
However instead of normally scrolling the list the scrolled fields turn up empty.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fill the list of recipents until you have more fields than is visible.
2. Place the input caret at the last or the first entry in the list
3. Move the mouse out of the recipients list area and place it over either the
From or Subject input field.
4. Use the scroll whell to scroll in the list. If you have placed the caret in
the first element in the list scroll down, if it is on the last element scroll up.
5. When the list is scrolled the entries should be scrolled but instead of seing
the entered recipients the scrolled area should be blank.

Actual Results:  
When the list is scrolled the entries should be scrolled but instead of seing
the entered recipients the scrolled area should be blank.

If the mouse pointer is inside the recipient list the scrolling works as expected.

Expected Results:  
Either no scroll at all or working scroll.

I see the same results by simply moving the scroll bar with the mouse arrow. Sometimes the recipient entries are visible and sometimes the screen is blank. The middle mouse button seems to work better for me than moving the scroll bar.

TB 1.0.10pre latest on Win 2003
