Hi Bernhard,

Thank you for forwarding this bug report.

P.S: What about a pre-release? There were quite some improvements
lately and making that available to a little bigger audience for testing
would be nice.

I agree. But there a two (or three?) things that have to be done before:

* An updated man page for "gv-update-userconfig": It now handles the parameters "-r" (for _r_emove unchanged) and "-h" (for _h_elp).

* I have to tweak "gv-update-userconfig" a little. Beside "-h" (for help", it should accept "--help" and "--usage". and I have to fix the "sub compare" (it works well in the situations that can occur for gv 3.6.5, but it does not work well in general). I think I will do this point today.

* (not sure, probably not for the next final release) Most of the suggestions from the debian bug report #160924 can be done by the following resource patch (only the changed lines are mentioned for the resource given):

GV.control.baseTranslations:#replace            \n\
 <Key>Prior:            GV_Page(!page-1,top-leftedge)           \n\
 <Key>Next:             GV_Page(!page+1,top-leftedge)           \n\

GV.control.prevPage.baseTranslations: #replace\n\
 <Btn1Up>:      notify() unset() GV_Page(!page-1,top-leftedge)\n\
 <Btn2Up>:      notify() unset() GV_Page(!page-5,top-leftedge)\n\
 <Btn3Up>:      notify() unset() GV_Page(!page-10,top-leftedge)

GV.control.nextPage.baseTranslations: #replace\n\
 <Btn1Up>:      notify() unset() GV_Page(!page+1,top-leftedge)\n\
 <Btn2Up>:      notify() unset() GV_Page(!page+5,top-leftedge)\n\
 <Btn3Up>:      notify() unset() GV_Page(!page+10,top-leftedge)

where you can/may replace "top-leftedge" by "top" if you prefer. Missing: If you select a page from the page panel (by clicking on the page number), then you will not be scrolled to the top of the page. That is because I did not find the code position to change.

The problem is that I am not sure whether these changes are a good idea or not. Assume a page with an empty border that fits to your screen if centered. Then you do not want to scroll to the top at every pagechange.

When the two mentioned changed are ready, then I will release the alpha release GV
