Oracle Forms: View jumps back to focussed item

In my application (which is an extensive questionaire) I use tabbed canvases to group text items. Since there are so many questions these canvases are quite high. In fact, higher than their corresponding window. Therefore, I use vertical scrollbars in the window that contains the canvas. This way users can browse through the many text items. The application works fine but there is one annoying fact: If a user gives input to text-item1 and then scrolls to read a remote item99 - after a few seconds- the view jumps back to item1 (which has the focus) hiding item99 which the user is just reading. (This problem does not appear when users use the tab-key to browse through items, yet many users prefer using their mouse). Thank you for your help!
