Issue with elementHeight/elementWidth scaling text element

I'm working with a text element in a data driven page-enabled layout. I want to change the height of the element based on the number of lines of text. However, when I use the elementHeight property to do this it doesn't just change the height, it scales the element's width as well (and likewise elementWidth scales the height). The "Preserve Aspect Ratio" option is ghosted, so that setting is apparently locked in on text elements.

Anyone having this same issue? Know any work arounds?
