Thomas Gschwend mentioned that my prior response might not have adequately 
tested Stata's do-file editor in a manner that would have replicated his 
methods, and I agree.

I had written a two-line do-file header and pasted in a three-line forvalues 
loop after the header.

When I copied an arbitrarily large file (I chose mfp.ado, 28+ kilobytes) into 
the do-file editor after a three-line header, I "see" the top of the file 
immediately after pasting, as Thomas does for his trials; however, the cursor 
is still located at the end of the pasted text, and a simple single press of 
the down-arrow key will bring into view the end of the pasted text--I didn't 
need to scroll.  This is still unsettling, nevertheless, and I would recommend, 
along with Thomas, that Stata Corp look into this.

I use Windows XP, English.
