Editor error link behaviour bug

Subject: Editor error link behaviour bug

Hello,

I'm using MATLAB R2009a on linux. When using the editor ( I use the editor undocked from the main matlab console etc.), should it detect an error, such as a missing parenthesis or something, the error is underlined as usual. When I then mouse click on the place where the error is I am switched back to the main matlab window.

This behaviour is extremely annoying to me, as it means I basically have to click elsewhere in the file and approach the error using the arrow keys. Now I'm not against using the arrow keys, but as this behaviour does not occur in R2008a under windows which is the what I mostly use, I keep forgetting and clicking on it and it is extremely annoying to say the least. Therefore I have a few questions:

1. Is this a new 'feature', or a bug, or a problem specific to my setup?

2. If this is a new feature, how do I turn it off?

3. If this is a new feature can it be redesignated a bug, as this is the correct way of viewing it?

4. If this is a new feature, what is, in fact, it's purpose?

Thanks,
Richard
