Not sure if this is a bug or a rcr. 
Then you have come to the right place!  :-) 
Does not want the write-in text to appear at all with the write-in line.  According to Gaston, NC they was able to do this in the NOV 99 election. 
Well, "how did you do it" is the obvious question.  Wild guess is that Jeff created a custom BF_WriteInText.rtf for them.  Try changing this file and see if that helps.  Remember to use WordPad not Word.
Created a WI and deleted the write-in text in race editor.  On the ballot only the line appears, however on the AVTS the WI text shows below the line.  I noticed under ballot options/oval-box the below line option is selected.   
These are largely paper-only options, unfortunately.
