Does it behave any better now?  I've increased the step size.

In other news, the Amiga ami_file_save_req() behaviour needs attention,
because browser_window_get_selection() now returns a pointer to a char *
string that the client must free, rather than the old textplain/html
struct selection object.

I've already fixed up the obvious stuff.
