When editing in the edit box I often am using multiple windows. If I switch focus to a different window and then later click in the edit box to resume focus on AWB the edit box will often scroll to the top losing the position at which I am editing. This may require that a window be overlapping AWB.

I am not sure if this case covers all of the times that I have seen this issue, but it does cause the issue and is repeatable: It happens if you select text and then click and drag (even a small amount) within the edit box such as to create a situation that is recognized as a drag and drop move. The mouse pointer will indicate that the target is not valid for a drop, but when the mouse button is released the window scrolls to the top of the page.
