[bug #15749] strange behavior with viewing files >2Gb

Update of bug #15749 (project mc):

                  Status:               Need Info => Invalid                
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 
        Operating System:                 FreeBSD => All                    


Follow-up Comment #4:

Try F5 to a line around the end of the file. This might be faster in the old
viewer. Now goto a line at the beginning of the file. Instantaneous in both
cases. Now jump to a line at the end of a file again. New viewer is
instanteneous. Old viewer still takes the same time as in the first case.

So if you actually want to view the whole file the new viewer behaves better.
If you just want to see the tail use tail.

We might want to document this new behaviour:

`"End" now behaves as a "goto" and fills the line cache which might take a
long time on large files. Jumping through the file is actually improved. Use
"tail" if you only want to view the tail of a file.`

Closing "not a bug".
