How to scroll to the current record in FMGo?

Post

One of my FMGo layouts presents a long list of items, each a separate record. It's possible to scroll the view of the list by touch-flicking, which is great, but I can't seem to be able to script a button that reliably gets me back to the current active record. Testing this on a desktop FileMaker machine, this works:

Go to Field [Select/perform; (a field on the layout) ]

Scroll Window [To Selection]

Commit Records/Requests []

The last step is because I don't really want the field selected, but I had to select it to get Scroll Window [To Selection] to work.

This, however, doesn't seem to work well in iPhone FMGo. It's not that it doesn't work at all... it's actually as if the "aim" for scrolling is off. If the record isn't very far away (in terms of how far the user flick-scrolled away) then it may actually be revealed. But the further the flick-scroll has taken the view away from the current record, the more the scroll-back or scroll-forward overshoots!

This seems like a bug to me. Has this been reported? Is there another method that would avoid it?

P.S. The screen shot below doesn't demonstrate the problem, but it shows the nature of the list I'm working with.
