Bug with FIND function in long files

When I look at windows log files (plain text) and I use the FIND function, the window is scrolled to the wrong line. When I click on the Zeus program window (not in the file window) the file is then scrolled to the correct line that had the "hit". If I click find again, a hit on the same screen will work correctly but when the next find is off of the current screen, the window is scrolled to another wrong position. This happens repeatedly through the file and if I return to the beginning, the same wrong lines are consistently displayed again. An important detail here is that the files are large/long (24k -- 180,000 lines). Has/does anyone else see this problem. You can use C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log if you want to try it.

This bug should be fixed in the latest version:

PS: Just for your information, what causes problem is the fact that the Windows WM_SCROLL message only has support for 65,536 lines (i.e. 16 bits) and after that Zeus has to restort to a few nasty hacks to work around this Windows limitation :(
