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 on XP.

I'm using a 1.3.9svn, but since the issue doesn't seem to have been 
reported, probably still exists.
