Description Michael Lee Yohe 2002-11-08 11:34:07 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.6 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
When I hold the page key down to rapidly scroll one page at a time down in a
document, it will scroll down a couple pages and then loop back and forth
between two pages.

However, if you scroll down and then hold page up down - it works without a problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load a document that is multiple pages long in gedit.
2. Hold the page down key.

Actual Results:  It will drop down a couple pages worth of text, but then loop
back and forth in the document between two pages.

Expected Results:  It should rapidly scroll down.

Additional info:

Running on a Pentium 4 2.4GHz box.

There's an existing bug report for this against gtk+/GtkTextView on 
Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2002-12-19 20:53:37 EST
Hmm, I can't find the upstream bug.

Anyway I believe it's a general GtkTextView problem, not gedit specific.

Moved to http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=103261 by automated script
but I see that's a dup.
