Couple of LPEX RDi 9.0 UI issues

Open any source file longer than about 10 pages the RPG LPEX editor in RDi for edit or browse. Click anywhere in the text and hold down any arrow key (up, down, left, or right) for a second. The cursor will not move until you release the key. That's a different behavior then RDi 8.5.

Grab the vertical scroll bar with the mouse and move it up or down. The editor has a difficult time following the scroll and will not refresh until you release the button. That's a different behavior then RDi 8.5

Press the Page Up or Down key and hold for a second. The editor doesn't change until you release. That's also different than Rdi 8.5

Use Case:

System: LPEX
Actor: Developer

* Position to place in code.
