That is true *if* we use the overlay arrow.  However, as has just been
pointed out, using the overlay arrow in error message lists is very
annoying on text consoles.  On text consoles, I think it would be
better to move to the top, even for RET or Mouse-2, than to display
the overlay arrow.

    They were discussed as part of a thread that started as a bug report on

    fringe arrow conflict between compile and gud?

Sometimes a bug fix can cause new problems that need other fixes.
And sometimes the only clean way to fix a bug requires adding a
small feature.
