[Known] Some text containers still not scrolling

Biography text window should allow scrolling during character generation

1. Unzip the attached character Biog to the BG:EE Characters folder.
2. Start a new BG:EE game and import character Biog.
3. Click through character appearance and sound.
4. Click on Biography.
5. With the mouse cursor over the biography text, scroll the mouse wheel down.

Biography text window in character generation only shows text that fits in the original text window size.

Biography text window in character generation should allow scrolling all the way to the bottom of the text.

Observed: character biographies still (v1.3) do not allow scrolling to the bottom of the text in either the character-creation screens or the character-customisation screens (although they do scroll in the character-information screens, but that already worked before v1.3). This applies both for a game already in progress when the v1.3 patch was applied and for a newly-created (post-patch) character.

Expected: the bug-fix list posted by @Dee for v1.3 says "- All text containers now allow scrolling all the way to the bottom of the text", so I expected this issue to have been fixed.

Context: I have numerous protagonists rolled-up whenever a character-concept has occurred to me, but stored for later use. I add notes to the biographies to remind myself how I intend to play and develop that protagonist when I get around to giving it a run, so they're always longer than the default biographies and usually longer than the text-box. Scroll-bars appear in the biography text-box when the biography is longer than the box, which work in information (so I can read my notes in-game) but don't work in creation or customisation (so I can't edit my notes in-game). I therefore have to resort to an external text editor whenever I want to edit a *.BIO file.
