Description of problem:
entry/textarea caret movement using the cursor keys is broken when the
three pango rendering patches (40,41,42) are applied, works fine when
they are commented.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a page with entry/textarea in TestGtkEmbed/epiphany/galeon
2. type "123456" in the entry/area
3. press the left cursor key
Actual Results: the caret "jumps" between 1 and 2
Expected Results: the caret moves between 5 and 6
Normal text entry is impaired heavily with this bug so I am marking it
To be more precise, patch 41 is causing the problem.
There's apparently an old version of the patch being used in the
package that has a known bug. Chris is going to look at it.
Somehow I imported the old version of that patch to mozilla. Fixed in
1.7.5-3, available tomorrow from the usuall places.
