build 657 - Cursor jumping all arounf file

Not sure what is causing this but I just copied a method from one class into another CNTL-X, CNTL-V, and now when I start to type, my cursor jumps to different positions in the file. It is almost like the Scoll to Source is confused. Is anyone else seeing this ?

Yup, when structure view is shown and scroll to source is on, the structure
view seems to overrides the cursor movement and return it to whatever is
viewed in the structure view.

Bug #5329.

I've also seen this. As I was typing, I referenced a class I had not
imported and got the suggested import pop-up. When I hit alt-ENTER and
continued typing, my cursor had jumped up a few lines and I was typing
nowhere near where I should have been.

On a side-note... much improved performance for 657... very impressive. :)

I've also seen this jumping if, for instance I have a method:

public void myMethod()

and I go back to the 'd' in 'myMethod' and start typing but pause after
entering the first character. What I ams eeing is that my cursor jumps back
to the beginning of 'myMethod' and stays there. So if I were changing the
name to 'myMethodBeginsHere' and paused slightly after entering the 'B', I
would end up typing 'eginsHeremyMethodB'

I've found that it hasn't happened for me as long as one (or both) of
"Autoscroll to source" and "Autoscroll from source" is disabled.

I have this problem also and it is really annoying. If I start writing a function or a handlebar command and when I hesitate, or not hesitate, I often look up on the screen finding that what I typed ended up at the wrong place. Causes a lot of bugs and confusion. Hard to say exactly what and when, but obviously it searches for a point of completion, but it does not wait for me to make my intentions clear. The settings for this, if they exist, should be off by default and have an easily accessible toggle. Shortcuts are good, but only when you know about them
