Matching brace highlight + scroll bug

Reported by Pockata | April 26th, 2011 @ 07:21 PM

Overview: When one (or two) of a pair highlighted braces get out of the editor view, the brace/braces lose highlight.
Here's a video capture of the bug: http://min.us/mbJ5SAQ6xSUdP

    I can't seem to watch that video. But I think I understand the bug.

    Actually I can't reproduce it. Can you describe the steps necessary in more detail please?

    Hmm, strange..
    Ok, here are the steps to reproduce it:
    1. Open a file with around 100 lines (size really doesn't matter. It just needs to have a vertical scroll) in Redcar
    2. Click on the side of one of these braces {} or (). If there's a match, it will be highlighted
    3. Now scroll up or down to hide one or both braces from the view.
    4. Scroll to them again.
    And BAM! They're not highlighted!

    Just in case i uploaded the video here: http://www.megavideo.com/?v=T5PCJ7WR (bad quality due to megavideo's encoder)
    I had trouble uploading it to youtube..

    OK, I get it, thanks. Low priority though, I'm afraid.

    Ok, no problem. I know there's more important stuff to do around Redcar, but i felt obliged to report it :)
