ok, think i can try making a quick fix for that i.e. disable the value
changes if "edit mode" is not "on" - this looks like a bug actually.
and also make the values change only if a filed is selected (e.g.
date/time), but have to test that a little.

scrolling up from the notes will remain as it is (without my patch)
it pretty much scrolls the whole widget if done scrolling up from the notes.
seems to be the standard scroll behavior in Qt.
