Yes, I am aware of this - however what I described was a bug in it. When 
watching the game and viewing the kibitzed in the way you described, the 
kibitz are jumped to the *FIRST* page of the kibitzes (not the bottom) 
even though I was still holding the mouse button (when a new kibitz 
arrived). Moving the slider a bit forced gGo to render the proper area 
though. Also there was lot of flashing if the kibitz-area at the time 
this happened (it looked like all the kibitze lines were refreshed when 
a new kibitz message arrived).

Later when I had reconnected to the IGS and again started observing the 
game there were no problems. I _guess_ that handling of the kibitz-area 
is slightly buggy if the game observed has been reloaded or something as 
when the bug occured the game had already been adjourned and reloaded a 
couple of times.

I am very sleepy, so nothing I wrote probably makes any sense.
