Only the same tactic you mentioned:

 > You have to click the mouse into the code, to get the line # updated

So the user discipline: Look at code, scroll, click, look at line#.
This feature keeps us on our toes. :)

Is there a separate Bug reported on this?
It is not the same as performance issues.

(The SE has performance issues, and even
line # performance limits I would think,
but not updating is a separate bug.)

I am still a bit sick with the tail end of COVID,
so not up to searching or reporting bugs this week.

Separate LC 9 SE Bugs we have, or had:

- Performance and practical script size limit.
- This one, line # updating.
- Messed up handler indentation.
- Disassociation of SE from script's object.
- SE window disappears if too many tabs.
- Excessive disk use (for HDD/antivirus)
- SE confusion about last insertion point/scroll.
- Weird text hilites in SE.
