Bug Description

When you run ERC and get a list of errors, each error contains link for the coordinates of the error. When you click on the link, the cursor doesn't move to those coordinates. It seems to move randomly.

This is completely broken. Clicking on the error message neither moves the cursor to the correct place or centers the marker when it's off the draw area. 5.0.1 works just fine.

This never got GAL-ified. (The good news is that GAL-ifying it will also give it the move-out-from-under-dialog behaviour.)
