I have on a WinForm a Multiline textbox with vertical scrollbar in a SplitContainer on a TabControl. If I run the program and move the mouse over the textbox, the text in the box disappears. 
It happens only on Vista, not on Windows XP SP2.

Is there any bugfix or workaround?

Thanks for the workaround. Pity I can't have a 3D border yet.

I'm afraid there's not a fix for this, but there is a workaround: this happens when you have a multiline textbox with scrollbar on a parent that's not opaque (at least partially transparent). If you add a panel that's the same size as the textbox, you can parent the textbox to that and parent that panel to the splitcontainer's child panel.

A quick workaround is to set the border style property of the text box to "FixedSingle" or "none", instead of "Fixed3D".
