Hi Steve, thanks for the concise bug reports.

Anybody got any ideas for a fix or work around?
(I'm guessing that we need extra bindings to handle
F5 + numberlock or ??????)

Yeah, I think the problem is that too many history points get add.
For example, I double click on a symbol to jump to it's declaration
in the editor (in the xref tab for example).  SN will add opening
the file in the editor to the history and then add jumping to the
correct location in the file to the history.  So if I hit the back
arrow, instead of going back to the xref, it will jump to the top
of the file, if I hit the back button again, it should go back to
the Xref.  Is this the behavior you are seeing?

I've not really looked at fixing this yet, but it would be really
nice if this would work without adding the extra points.

I wish Microsoft had based NT on BSD instead of VMS (I'm thinking
about slashes...).

Has anybody had similar problems on other platforms?
