Yes, I think your are right.

I also used to experience this problem a while ago.  And then I picked
up some code in this list that highlight the current agenda line:

(add-hook 'org-agenda-mode-hook '(lambda () (hl-line-mode 1)))

(I think that's the code anyway.)  And now I *never* go off in the
weeds with my Right & Left keys.

For me, I think I use the cursor to help my eyes focus on something.
Usually in the agenda the cursor is off to one side. I want to move it
to the column I'm actuallly looking at, so I "lean" on it for about
the right key-repeat time to get it there.  That would throw the
agenda several months in the future.

But that all stopped once I started using that hightlight code above.

My $.02
