Find not showing found and highlighted text

    I just installed the latest version (i.e. v4.0.2) and now the find procedure doesn't work properly. I had version 4.0.1 installed for a very short time in-between the 3.9.x series and 4.0.2 so I don't know for sure if it was broken in 4.0.1 or not. What happens is that the find will find and highlight the text that is searched for, but it doesn't move the window to display the found text (i.e. it doesn't scroll the window to make the found text visible).

    Thanks for the great program,

      I found out that the problem is with the word wrap feature. The file that was displaying this behavior has one line that is extremely long. If I split the line (Ctrl+I) or turn word wrap off, the find works as it should, moving the screen in order to make the highlighted text visible. This must be a bug, and is probably not run across very often, but the standard notepad that comes with Windows does handle the situation properly.
