Can't change ScrolledText #196

The tkinter ScrolledText widget is a bit of a hack - it turns itself into a Frame - so, once it has been added to the GUI, there's no easy way to detect it.

Furthermore, it replaces lots of the Text's functions with Frame's functions - so setting the highlight background/background don't work.

This needs to be worked out...
