For me at least, there seems to be a problem when working with multi-line edit
fields in links. Single line fields are no problem, but if one wants to scroll
up and down a lot of text in a multi-line field, it takes a lot of fiddeling to
get it right. I can't remember how I did it, but I remember having a hell of a
time trying to scroll back up a multi-line edit field.
