Description of problem:
In cases where you are filling in a multirow textarea with Mozilla and you are
visibly at the end of a row, then you want to add space characters after the
last word in that row. The cursor jumps back to the end of the last word of
that row and all spaces subsequently are not shown.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Skipjack beta1 with up2date (3-27-2002)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type in any textarea box on any webpage, like these Bugzilla textareas.
2. Type a single letter on a line and hold down the spacebar. Observe behavior.
3. Notice that all of those spaces were actually typed in the textarea, but the
UI doesn't reflect this.
Re-tested: Still broken in Red Hat Linux 7.3.
Still broken in Limbo2.
Still in 1.0.1 but I'm not going to try and fix it locally. It should probably
be reported and fixed upstream.
