Odd scrollbar behavior in IDLE v1.0b2 (Bug?)

My setup:
Python 2.3b2
IDLE 1.0b2

If I use IDLE and have a block of "wraparound" text (text that runs on
to the next line without having an explicit line break) then use the
scrollbar on the right-hand side to navigate (either by dragging on
the bar,using the scroll-wheel on the mouse, or clicking on the
directional arrows), the grey, moveable part of the scrollbar changes

For example:

>>> 'a'*6000

will yield a large block of text that should demonstrate this problem.

There are two conditions:
(1) The scroll bar is active
(2) There is a block of wraparound text

To reproduce this, just move the scroll bar around.

Is this a bug that should be reported?
