#1137 Opening file with doubleclick causes brief flash

SciTE (627)

This is a new behavior ever since I've switched from Scite 2.10 to 2.25.

When I double-click on a text file while Scite is already running, Scite will briefly move its window in the middle of the screen, open the file, and then return to its previous location. This happens extremely fast so there is an annoying flash when files are opened.

I'm on XP SP3. I'll just use 2.10 for now..

    Can't make this happen on Windows 7 and there aren't any changes that look like they would cause this. Possibly the SciTE instance initially opened due to the double click is taking more time to open, talk to the main instance and then close so is visible.
