Personally I find that version of a scroller your using is total weirdo. It
has most unreadable code (for a scroller) I've seen so far and from what
I've heard about it, it seems it's keeps snooping more and more memory every
time it scrolls a bit. 
I wrote my own version, just for the fun of it.  Maybe you should try it,
for a change :) I'm not saying it's bigger/better/faster/etc.. but it's a
bit more user friendly.  It shouldn't be hard to adapt it to include it in
textbox instead (I think you'll only have modify one line).  
Have a look at: http://www.bart.nl/~thom/scroll.html
Further more, I don't think it's possible to change to colors inside a
textbox, but then again, I could be wrong...
