   Scintilla does not guarantee that there is a newline at the end of the
buffer as one of Scintilla's goals is to faithfully store any file and not
all files end with a newline. There could be a mode to pretend that there is
always a newline at the end (and I think Mark has asked for this) but that
looks quite messy to me.
