Auto-scrolling not working on macOS 10.15 Catalina

From user "bobfoster" at

Previously, in chats when the list of text boxes was scrolled to the bottom, any additional messages, either typed by user or received from other users, was added to the bottom and the list was scrolled up to reveal it. After upgrading to Catalina yesterday, this autoscrolling behavior has stopped working. When user types a message and hits return, the new message is hidden. Likewise, messages from other users are not revealed by scrolling up. So one has to constantly manually scroll up to see the message thread.

Additional detail from user "spelunker":

After opening Adium for the first time there is a space, often, above the first messages. The new messages scroll until the top 'old' message hits the top of the window. Scrolling thereafter stops.

I've also noticed that the "other party is typing" indicator switches on when they are, but the "you have not read old messages" colour for unread messages seems no longer to work


New to macOS 10.15 Catalina.

I've confirmed that this bug persists on Apple's supplemental 10.15 releases that were available up to October 24.
