  • show line numbers must be on
  • text file larger than 998 lines
  • set cursor to line >= 999
  • now goto home with ctrl-home: cursor is before the first char on first line (ok)
  • now goto next line with arrow-down: cursor is now before the second char on second line (bad!)

If you often cut-and-paste lines from begin to end of a large textfile it's very nerving because always the first char from the next line is marked and cut out.

    Dear chmilo

    For an error explanation and a possible patch see patch #475.

    A work around is to press two times ctrl-home!
