Serge, you have something weird going on. I've never seen or heard of behaviour 
like that.

The user is in control. The displayed position for a filelist is not supposed 
to move around of its own accord, with or without scrollbar thumb movement. 
(How is it even possible to move the view with the thumb staying in the same 
place, I wonder.)

The visible contents may of course change, if you re-sort, or change a property 
of item(s) which affects the current sorting, or if you add or remove item(s).

Let's start to track it down, with a couple more details:

 * gtk version
 * emelfm2 version
