Comment 6 Rahul Bhalerao 2008-01-18 11:44:34 UTC
Blinking two cursors is actually a special feature and not a bug. When a
conjunct comes in the middle of a word, and you try to use backspace on it, the
following characters start getting combined due to the exposed 'halant'. This
spoils the entire word and makes the user delete the entire word. To stop such a
behavior for indic scripts, the two blinking cursor feature is implemented, so
that even if the backspace is used on a conjunct between a word, it stops
following characters from forming their conjucts and allows user to correct the
later(erased) part of the conjunct. The current behavior that I see is exactly
how it should be. Thus I think this bug should be closed with a resolution NOTABUG.
