Why the behaviour of `list 9999` differs from ZX Spectrum 48/128?

This is where most of us started. Classic Spectrum basic.

Why the behaviour of `list 9999` differs from ZX Spectrum 48/128?

I have realised NextBASIC's `list` with a line number higher than the actual last line of the program is ignored, while the same command in 48 or 128 moved to the end of the program. Is that difference intended? The manual and the "NextZXOS Editor features" document don't mention it.

The shortcut EXTEND+GRAPHICS is great to go to the end of the program, even with a PS/2 keyboard, but anyway I wonder why the behaviour of the old `list 9999` has changed.

It's not a deliberate change. Most probably it will have happened when fixing up bugs/oddities in the editor. I'll look into it at some point.
