Ok, I checked on Windows and the Textadept window is actually partly
off screen. Weird.

I was trying to save the buffer.x_offset position in sessions.lua.
When trying (directly in Textadept)
for _, buffer in ipairs(textadept.buffers) do
textadept.print(buffer.x_offset) end
I get an error "the indexed Buffer is not the focused one". Is there
some workaround to get this value for all buffers?
