Problem with formula template completion

I am experiencing a problem with formula completion templates in 
Mathematica. For example, when I select a template to enter a part of a 
formula, such as the exponent or fraction templates in the BasicInput 
palette, the template appears not at the place in the document where I 
want to put it, but somewhere up near the top of the document.  After I 
have completed the fields in the template, I then have to scroll down 
to the point where I was working, and after selecting an insertion 
point again the formula appears correctly.  This is an extremely time 
wasting and annoying "feature".

I am using version 4.1.5 on Mac OSX 10.3.  This problem also occurred 
in 3.0, and I reported it to Wolfram when I was using that version.

Does anyone else experience this problem?

Why has it not been fixed over several major version releases?
