That's because they're just two. If you have more, you'll need at
least n-1 of them (also counting fields in other windows).
That is because the amount of text scrolling is in
FACE/PARA/SCROLL; as long as the FACE/PARA object is shared among
all fields, as it is by default, you get that effect. You need to
clone it for every field to avoid that.
BTW, my global fix example should also set the para flag in the
face, so that a subsequent SET-PARA doesn't need to clone the
object again. Also, maybe one could patch the function that does
the scrolling when entering text to use SET-PARA, so that the
object gets cloned only when, and if, it is needed.
