What I have subsequently found is that the key thing seems to be when
you finally highlight all the remaining text in the frame. Happened both
with text I had manually entered or with sample text.
Does not happen in Linux (Fedora 14), nor could I see it in 188.8.131.52 on XP.
I'm using a 1.3.9svn, but since the issue doesn't seem to have been
reported, probably still exists.
