  1. Open a document with at least 2 lines of text in Notepad++.
  2. Move to the top of the document.
  3. Activate NVDA say all (NVDA+downArrow).
  4. Stop say all by pressing control when it reaches the second line.
  5. Make NVDA report the selection (NVDA+shift+upArrow).
  6. Expected: There should be no selection.
  7. Actual: The first line is selected.

This is probably also why spurious selection and unselection is reported during say all. Selection wasn't reported automatically for Scintilla controls until 78daa96, but this bug would have existed before then and needs to be fixed.

We're using the wrong messages. In Scintilla, selection consists of two parts: the anchor and the current position. We're using SCI_SETCURRENTPOS; we should be using SCI_GOTOPOS.
