Argh - it's wxSTC::GetCurrentPos() returning the wrong value. I imagine
it's related to the previous bug which I logged with the wx guys:

The workaround used previously involved wxSTC::SetSelection(), and
basically not using it any more. Unfortunately there is no similar fix
that I can think of for this case. I'll add some info on the issue to
the wx bug and note it in our bugs file. I'm not sure there's much else
I can do I'm afraid :-(
Thanks for the report though.
