[Bug 7594] Wine window scrolling is broken

I meant to say CTRL+V, not CTRL+C

I've always seen this bug for as long as I've been using Wine, since
about 0.9.15.
I can't really post a screenshot, because it is a dynamic problem.

As far as duplicating it, it's easy to do. Take a string of about 50
chars or more, copy then paste it onto the end of itself. Hold down
CTRL+C and let it run amok. In Windows, it will run until it decides
enough is enough, then it will wrap to the next line. Wine just keeps
going on the same line until the scroll bar can't handle it anymore then
weird stuff happens with the scroll bar. Just try it, I'm confident that
you'll see what I'm talking about. If you search bugzilla using the
keyword "scroll" you will find 16 bugs all relating to scroll bars and
they all have a familiar theme to them.
