Is this a GTK or GNOME issue? Any clue where I might ask for help?
It's a Scintilla issue.
Hmm - I've also tried this in GEdit, and that exhibits the same irritating behavior... Also, I'd been using SciTE on Windows a while back, and never experienced this issue.
The SciTE on my system behaves more like what you want but even not exactly like that. But for some reason, I don't find the setting which causes the different behaviour. I checked the wordchars settings and even scrolling settings but with no luck. It's probably just a single setting which is different.
