The bug did involve Linux, but in a slightly different way, as noted by 

At any rate, Jean has fixed it. I can verify in Linux, but not Windows.

If you are compiling from svn it is available now. If you use Windows, 
you'll have to wait for a 1.4.0svn snapshot to be available. In the 
meantime, be wary of using Ctrl+X to delete all of the contents of a 
text frame.
