Thank you for the tip. I'll try it (I have the necessary privileges 
on the machine in turn), although it is not much convenient as the 
rest of the system/applications will get affected also.

It is written it should be fixed in 9.1 but I experience somewhat 
related (with scrolling) issue (as described below) on a machine 
using an Intel VGA built in the motherboard - I've installed the 
latest driver available obtained through the Intel site, released 
somewhere the last year.

On other machine using two different model NVidia based cards - 
there are no problems, even with Amaya 9.0... but there were 
problems with Amaya 9.0 using somewhat older driver (from November 
2004, WHQL certified).

Yes, it happens on Amaya 9.1.4 as with 9.1. It doesn't happen with 
Amaya 8.7.4 or 8.7.3 (all on WinXP).
