Any score in single-page view: Scroll up or down by mouse wheel and continue moving the wheel for a while after content moves out of visibility --> The movement can continue endlessly beyond visibility. After this, scrolling back in unlimited length is necessary. This can become a trap (loosing any sight and not regaining).

When repairing, please take care to allow a certain tolerance, so that the edge of score can go out at least until the middle of the window, or more. Otherwise, when strongly zooming out (zooming small, by wheel + Ctrl), the limit could cause unwanted scrolling, losing the spot when zooming-in again. Scrolling should remain fully reversable, as it is now.

RIght, this was a consideration when implementing the constrain option mentioned above and why it isn't enabled by default.

BTW, depending on where you'd like to return to, there are keyboard shortcuts to get you there. Eg, Home to take you to the first measure, End to the last, or Shift+L to restore your previously selected location.

... you say: Shift+L to restore your previously selected location.
Is that correct? It does not work on my computer.

It always works to re-establish the selection, and if necessary, to reposition the view there. If the selection is already in view, there is nothing to do. Except, it will force a screen reader to re-read the information about the selection, which is actually the reason the command was implemented.
