[Tkinter-discuss] Scrollbar maybe not setting right on a text widget

The reason I say "maybe" is because I am not sure if that is what is

What happens is that the textbox will fill up (with info the program puts
in, not the user) and the text widget will be at the top, like you will be
looking at the begining of the textbox, but the scrollbar starts at the
bottom of the track. It thinks it is at the bottom, but if you press the
down arrow, it resets and figures it out. I am wondering if I forgot code or
put it out of order?

Oh, and I am using a mac with leopard. 

Here is code:

        self.scrollbar = Scrollbar(self.textFrameBuffer) 
        self.scrollbar.pack(side=RIGHT, fill=Y)

        self.text = Text(self.textFrameBuffer,
        self.text.pack(side=LEFT, fill=BOTH, expand=YES)

--------The Text is filled in after this point. However, I have done the
exact same setup with a listbox, and it works just as it should-----------
