Message Log window broken in DRC

Bug Description

The message log window will not scroll when running DRC.
The [CANCEL][OK] dialog box apparently breaks event
handling for the message log. This is a really bad
time for scrolling to be broken. For example, you
want to scroll back to see what the rules were.
IIRC, this is a change from significantly older
versions of PCB.

Also, the message log fails to pop to the front. A
bunch of textless ("Press OK to continue DRC checking"
doesn't count) OK dialogs is quite confusing. Putting
the text in both the dialog and the message log would
be a good idea.

PCB Version: 20060422

I could confirm message log will not scroll while running but then DRC check is done it will scroll again. This should be OK if pcb is single threaded.
