I've fixed some stuff and added new features.

You can now navigate in the minimap by dragging the highlighted region
with the mouse, which scrolls the corresponding buffer. It's not
perfect, but I think it works pretty well.

I've added a new option to automatically recenter the minimap upon
cursor movement, and an existing minimap is reused if its buffer isn't
currently visible. Last not least, the minimap is now read-only.
