Hi developers!

Testing the pgAdmin III 1.8.0  Beta 3 (Aug 10 2007, rev: 6546M). Client 
Win XP, host: Debian Etch / PG 8.2.4 and Debian Sarge / PG 8.1.8

Concerning In the SQL window:

If output is too long for the various tabs in the output pane, the 
scroll bar is activated. The expected behaviour would be to have the 
scrollbar at the top and cut text at the bottom. (Who starts reading 
messages from the bottom?) And that is what happens, most of the time. 
The various tabs seem to remember their respective current position when 
switching between them, and that is a good thing, too.

However, in case of an error on execution pgadmin goes to the _end_ of 
the text in the "Messages" tab. That's inconvenient, even more so, as 
there are (superfluous?) blank lines at the end of error messages. It's 
a bit of a trap, too, if the message makes (misleading) sense when read 
from somewhere in the middle. Fooled me a couple of times.

Also, the "History" tab seems to get confused after some time. The 
scrollbar goes to the top at first, but after a couple of executions it 
choses a (random?) position in the text. Could not uncover the 
systematic behind it.


Maybe there is a fix to go to the _top_ of the message per default all 
the time?


Regards
Erwin
