How do I stop Icechat scrolling the Chat window?

How do I stop

Icechat scrolling the Chat window?

When a new message appears Icechat jumpes down to that message.
I sometimes

read old messages and find it annoying when this happens.

Is it possible to stop Icechat doing that?

Enable the Scroll Lock key.
This should prevent IceChat

from scrolling.

Tried. Thanks.

Was "Shift - Scroll Lock" for me.

After one week of pressing "scroll lock" I'm still

confused.
Sometimes it works perfect (about in 10% of the cases), but in the other time it is just luck when it stops to

scroll.

Do you have another hint how to stop the scrolling?
Or can you give me a hint how to increase the "perfect

working" rate?

Wait for version 5.20. Also, if you switch windows, it goes

back to the bottom when you switch back. If you want to try out the beta version of 5.20, send me a private message, and we

can arrange that.

It still auto-scrolls down to bottom with ver 5.20 build

050904, is there an option that was added I'm not seeing that will cancel this?  Scroll Lock doesn't seem to work

either.

Its either Scroll Lock, or shift scroll lock.

If

neither of these work, I "may" release version 5.21, and add some kind of an option to force it, other then the scroll lock

keys.
