Description Jeff Fortin Tam 2011-01-27 08:47:43 UTC
1) start writer
2) insert a new note (ctrl+alt+N?)
3) type some text in it; the text cursor is now at the end of the note
4) alt+tab to another app
5) alt+tab to go back to writer

- the text cursor is not visible
- typing results in the text being inserted at the beginning of the note (instead of at the end or at the "last position" of the text cursor)

[This is an automated message.]
This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:
