Maybe it's me that missing something instead. But in all versions of MC up 
until the current beta, clicking on a visible line in the Control Browser 
would bounce that line to the middle of the field. In Ken's 8-line field 
example, if lines 1 to 4 were visible and I clicked on line 4, it would 
scroll to the position that line 2 used to hold -- at least in the Control 
Browser. Since I could find no scripts in the browser to control the 
behavior I assumed it was in the engine. Maybe its in a backscript 
somewhere instead.

Note this is for visible lines, not hidden lines, and not when scripting a 
selection but when clicking on one. No other UI allows that behavior that 
I know of.
