Annoying Word Bug

Ocassionally I work on very large word documents. I've find twice now that they get a really annoying but if you have a lot of text in tables. What happens is that if you scroll up and down with the page up and page down keys it works OK, but if you use the up and down directional keys or if you scroll up with the mouse, text text becomes extremely buggy and the wrong sentences appears to overwrite other sentences.

I'm wondering if this is a problem which wouldn't occur on a 64 bit machine. I've heard quite a few people saying that Windows 64 bit allows much much larger and more complex spreadsheets, so I would assume to does the same for Word documents.

The cut off point seems to be on around 60 pages. Has anyone else had any experience with this problem?
