Oh, disregard the part about not liking that fix, I was referring to the broken attempted fix in r4263.

I have a tentative fix that I dont like in r4264. Since there were a few things broken this probably deserves some testing before declaring victory. Thanks for the report Mike.

if i search for text that doesnt exist, and i use the up arrow to go back up in my search history, the cursor in the main window will move up the same number of times.

open a window, type 5 lines, then do a search and search for something that isnt in the file and hit up a few times, and then the cursor will move up that far as well.
