Web Direct text entry field - scroll bar causes alignment change

I was noticing an odd situation with a basic text field used for entering notes by the user.  When it is shown in Web Direct ) and you also show the scroll bar, the cursor shows up centered (vertically) in the box when the box is empty.  Adding text will cause it to scroll up from the middle.  However, if you remove the showing of the scroll bars, an empty field will correctly show the cursor at the top of the field.

 

Viewed using Chrome or Safari on OS X

Served from FMS 15.01

The field is formatted for horizontal = left, vertical = top; padding is 4, 3, 4, 3 (left/top/right/bottom); line height is 1.

 

Anyone else run across this issue?  Does someone know of a solution so that it always renders the cursor at the top?
