Yes, I would say that is pretty much the exact problem. I said the
cursor was parked but it appears to be that way at the start and then
track with the cursor on the wrong line. Please let me know when and
if your patch gets instituted into the newt code. It is very
important for the cursor to track correctly because my kernel patches
don't have any highlight tracking built into them as of yet. A blind
person installing needs to know without a shadow of a doubt which line
he/she is on.
