Collapsing JScrollPane?

I have build up my gui using gridbag layout. On the top row, there are 3 panels (search, message and booking). On the row below, spanning all columns, there's a JScrollPane. Problem is, if the scroll pane is filled and the message panel is updated with some new text, this makes the whole scroll pane collapse. I've tried to put the scroll pane inside another JPanel, but without success. Anyone experienced this? Any suggestions on how to aviod it?

Don't know whether this will solve your problem.
But just a thought. Have message panel on a scrollpane.
