It does try to scroll back to the left if you leave the long line and end 
up on a short one... it sticks to the left in this way, figuring that's
mostly where you want to be.  Is this what's annoying you?

Actually, I also see a bit of ticking back and forth when autocompletion
comes up on a long line that's scrolled to the right... scrolling shifts
as the autocompletion box changes widths.

The latter should definately be fixed... and if sticking to the left is
bothering you, a pref could be added to turn this off so it only scrolls
when it actually needs to in order to show the caret.
