Remove scrolling when repositioning to next/previous error.

When using the next/previous error buttons in RDi, the program used to go directly to the source line. At some point this was changed to scroll to the source line. However, this scrolling is much too slow and negatively affects the time taken to correct errors.

Use Case:

Compile a program in RDi, double click on an error in the error list, the use the Got To Next Problem or Go To Previous problem button.
