When you reshape the chat window, so that you get more of the output, it continues to scroll in the old clipping region.'

I dunno if I reported this before, but if you reshape a chat window, it doesn''t scroll in the new region (e.g., if you make it bigger.) Also, if you then close the connection and restart the connection, it starts printing at the wrong place.'

Workaround: clear the window, it resets the scrolling region
