Description Alan McGovern 2012-07-23 08:29:34 UTC
1) Write a long line of text
2) Double click on a word near the start and try to drag select words to the right of it.

Result: the entire text editor scrolls to the right immediately making this action impossible

Similar things happen when clicking once and dragging left, and various other ways of drag-selecting text.
