I can't help you with the line numbers, but I added a function to the
emacs mode that allows jumping directly to the n-th clause of the
predicate. This should make life a little easier.

The looping occurred when the end of the region (marked or not) was also
the end of the buffer and at the end of a non-empty line. This bug is
fixed. You can find the updated eclipse.el at
