Especially at some combinations of font size and page zoom, text earlier on a line in Writer dances around (is inconsistently re-rendered) while typing. While not serious, this is ugly and distracting.
See attachment for a simple example
This occurs on OSX, but I can't immediately reproduce it on Linux.

Simple example of text dancing while being typed
I can reproduce this behavior. I'm sure this is mentioned already somewhere. I don't know if someone already create an independant bug report for it.
Therefore I mark this one as NEW, because I can reproduce this behavior using Mac OSX 10.8.3 and LibreOffice 18.104.22.168. It is even more visible when you zoom a bit.
I suspect sallayout.cxx for this bug and 64957!
Is the version number correct? Did the original bug reporter really see this in 4.0? Or in 4.1?

I'm looking at it still happening in 22.214.171.124
If this is in 4.0 it's un-related to coretext or bug#64957 we don't use coretext there.
Matthew do you still see the problem on recent version ?
I can't seems to reproduce

I can still see it in "Web Layout" mode under 126.96.36.199, but it may possibly have been fixed by the resolution of bug 64957 ?
Cannot reproduce with 188.8.131.52.
