Description Simon Lindgren 2012-07-19 10:22:05 UTC
Sometimes when I click on a line in the editor, the caret is not moved to the column where I clicked, but to the end of the line.

It seems to happen more often when clicking several times in quick succession, almost like a double click but on different lines, but that is not necessary - it happens on single clicks too.

Steps to reproduce:
Click around on some lines in a file.

Some additional info:

This issue is still present in b83531865b6e097a561c54c5a5f24000d456cd40.

I bisected the problem, and bc2ec0a4a80b1c4a1c3f70481823b7ca699463f7 seems to be the first bad commit. This commit has the commit message "[TextEditor] Applied work-around for font height problem." so it seems plausible that this commit introduced/exposed the bug.

Setting another font exposed the problem.
