What's the point in that? The reason the scroller is frozen to start
with is because with some feeds it rips too fast to even be read. And
in others, you might want to read through what's there and just about
the time you get the mouse to where you want to click, it'd start moving
again? Nope, no auto-restarts for me, thanks.
> I do like the scroll stop feature.. I did have a short period last night, ie about 12 hours ago on the then current version where I clicked on the APRS-IS OK had the window open. The info window was larger, ie overhanging the main screen, when I tried to access the X to close the window, I noticed the cursor would only track on the size the the main map window. THis was in some way associated with the Scroll lock that I had been playing with...
The scroller lock captures the mouse, but does not constrain it's
motions. However, there is a ClipCursor() call when the map pane
captures the mouse for dragging it around. Now that I've looked at
that, it doesn't actually constrain the mouse on my Windows 7 machine.
When you pan/drag the map around, can you move the mouse outside the
client window? You should be able to get right out to the frame on all
edges, but not get outside the window itself. If so and if not, what
version of Windows are you running?

I might want to support Escape unlocking the scroller, but I'll have to
think on that one a bit.

Try it by dragging the map around while the scroller is locked. Since
they both capture the mouse, there may be some unintended interaction
between the two.
