I used Find Refernces comand (Ctrl-Shift-Enter) on a data member of a structure, then did some editing of the unit containing the references. As the result, parts of code that contained the references were removed.

So there are 3  references in the FindRef result panel,  all referring to lines of code that no longer exist (some deleted, some commented-out and moved to the end of the unit)

Double-clicking some of these references positions the cursor at the top of the file (which is the expected behaviour),  but one of them causes the IDE to respond with the "File tracking position not found" dialog.  Clicking the [Details] button invokes the madException diagnostic window (see the stack trace attached).

(a)  Well, it would be goog to see why the tracking gets lost and fix that.  Unfortunately, I can't provide the exact sequence of actions that lead to this error.

(b)  More importantly, even if the "not found tracking position"  error still occurs sometimes,  it should be silently processed, or displayed in the message panel, but it must not cause an unhandled exception.
