In 2003032009 for OS/2 and other recent builds for OS/2, W32 & Linux in which
the keys aren't broken, the PgUp & PgDn keys scroll the dialog viewport
approximately 50% (screenshot upcoming). My eyes find it difficult to adjust to
PgDn/PgUp causing so little scroll trying to catch up when moving between channels.

In the browser, these keys move close to a full screen, moving about the last
two lines of ordinary text to the top of the viewport or vice versa. I think
scrolling less than 100% is a good thing, for both CZ and browser, making it
easy for the eyes to reattach.

But, 50% is not enough. I think either there should be a pref for number of
lines (or %) less than full screen to scroll, or the current behavior should be
changed to closely parallel the browser, moving the top or bottom 2, 3, or 4
lines to the other extreme.
My patch for bug 200188 fixes this bug too.
