Workaround for this bug is that customers can enable "Compatibility Mode" for this page in IE9: http://cggallant.blogspot.com/2011/03/document-compatibility-modes-in.html

One way: 1) press F12, 2) change "Document Mode" to "IE8 Standards" or something.

We do not build the editarea rpm for Spacewalk, so there's nothing I can do here.

I have filed bugs upstream on editarea, patches to fix editarea can be found on those bugs:
bug 811164
bug 811167
