Geany with my patch behaves normally without unnecessary goto_pos. But today
I added more clear-looking patch that skips goto-ing if pos == current_pos.
Isn't? Try, it will take 2 minutes:

void sci_goto_pos(ScintillaObject *sci, gint pos, gboolean unfold)
	if (unfold) SSM(sci, SCI_ENSUREVISIBLE, (uptr_t) SSM(sci,
	SCI_LINEFROMPOSITION, (uptr_t) pos, 0), 0); 
	/* Do not goto if we are already here */
	if(pos == sci_get_current_position(sci)) return;
	SSM(sci, SCI_GOTOPOS, (uptr_t) pos, 0);
