Since you need the text box to behave in a completely different way than it was designed to do, I wouldn't consider it to be a 'hack-job'. I would call it 'creative coding'. ;-)
You could set the member's boxtype to #fixed (which won't show
scrollbars) then switch it to #scroll when there are twenty one or more
real lines of text.
I have a similar 'chat' text member, I just never was concerned with the
text starting at the top, or having the disabled scroll bars before the
it was full. I do employ a fairly simple way of keeping the most recent
text at the bottom once it fills up:
member("SomeMemberName").scrollTop = member("SomeMemberName").height -
