1. We know that some parsers return line 0, but I haven't seen line#
larger than the #lines + 1 (equal to #lines + 1 is accepted by
scintilla and goes to EOF). So we probably parsed a number which is
not a line #.

2. The plugins may expect navqueue_goto_line() to return a precise
result. Well they don't ATM, and handling 0 is not precise either. If
we decide on big line == last line, we'd better (a) make the function
void after the release and (b) seek to EOF, for sync with scintilla.

A bit shorter (all variants are pretty easy). I proposed the most
logical (IMHO), but anything that'll make focusing work is fine by me.
