There have been so many changes in that area that it would be hard to
point to any particular one.  There was progressive deterioration.
There was even a time where the screen display and the behavior could
get out of sync (the cursor displays at a different point than it
behaves) and I am not sure this has not occured recently.

Since you said no fixes where intended before the release, I stopped
actively checking for things like that since it would only annoy me to
no good cause.

And there are things where clicking on some highlighted line (probably
not fully visible) will cause the line to jump away in some manner of
recentering, thus evading the click action, and jump back afterwards.
Sort of click-avoidance-mode.

I just don't understand how stuff like that tests as an improvement.

Irrelevant.  I use the equivalent of auto-reveal-mode on
