Fixed in SVN, r5149.

However, a small mistake remains: when the last line shown on the screen is empty, and the cursor is at the end of the last-but-one line, then a <Ctrl+Right> will scroll two lines. If there are more empty lines, it will scroll as many lines. It's... too much, but for the moment forgivable.

When using smooth scrolling, then doing a <Left> while at the start of the top line of the screen, or a <Right> at the end of the bottom line, this will scroll the screen one line. But when doing a <Ctrl-Left> or <Ctrl-Right> in those places (or other keys that are bound to the PrevWord and NextWord functions), will scroll half a screen. This feels wrong and unexpected.

When the required scroll to go to the preceeding or the next word is more than one line, a halfscreen scroll might be acceptable, but when one line can do it, then it should scroll just one line.
