Description of problem:
Spell-checking while typing a new message, and the placement of the caret, does
not work when Pango is disabled.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Everytime I un-comment the MOZ-DISABLE-lines in /usr/bin/thunderbird
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Uncomment the MOZ-DISABLE-lines in /usr/bin/thunderbird
2. Start thunderbird
3. Write a new mail
4. Do some typing errors, try to move the caret backwards, forwards
Typing errors are not highlighted though they should, and the caret does not
follow the movements of the left/right arrows.
Errors highlighted and a caret that follows the arrow keys.

I also meet the caret problem on firefox-22.214.171.124-2.fc6 when pango is disabled.
Could fully reproduce with thunderbird-126.96.36.199-6 on RHEL 5?

probably related to this is a bug 227437?

Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please let us know
in this bug report. If after a month's time we have not heard back from you, we
will have to close this bug as CANTFIX.
Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

This works with Fedora7. The bug can be closed.
