HOW TO REPRODUCE:

Write a line that is quite wider than the screen. Go to
the end of the line. Now go to the left using the
'left' key (press it 15 times for example).

ACTUAL RESULTS:

SciTE scrolls horizontally to the left while it was not
necessary, making it impossible to have the cursor at
the left of the screen while showing the end of a long
line.
Also, once the SciTE starts scrolling, it continues to
scroll every time one press the left key (or
control-left or end) making the screen redraw many
times where it was not necessary.

EXPECTED RESULTS:

It should stay in the same position unless you go to
the edge of the screen and need to scroll in order to
see what is under the cursor.

    I finally discovered the bug, it is not related with python.
    Here you have a testcase.

    this is by design and I like it this way. There may be some
    more options in the future if anyone cares to implement them.

    There is a setting in 1.39 caret.policy.xjumps which
    changes this behaviour to be more as requested here.
