However, sometimes I take the trouble to scroll everything to
just how it is needed (so some critical portion of code is
visible). Pressing * to search forwards, and then N followed by
another N to go backwards might scroll the window, and that
would be a great distraction. Worse is when I stop to think
"if I press * will the window scroll?", because by the time
I've pondered that, and whether some tweaks to my setup might
overcome my difficulty, I have forgotten what I needed to do
in the code I was looking at.
