* Type a letter in the Image URL editfield to activate the other fields.
* In the border field try to enter the following string: "12a"

Status: RESOLVED → VERIFIED
Any alpha char is getting eaten, but no numeric chars are.  This behaviour is
the same on MacOS86, Win98, & Linux6. On 4.7 for Windows & Linux, the alpha
chars are not eaten, and an error dialog box appears with the message, which
varies between the platforms.
For Linux: "The following value is out of range:  For space, you can have
between 1 and 10000 pixels.  Please enter a new value and try again."
For Windows: "Please enter an integer."

On 4.7 MacOS, alpha chars are not allowed.

Marking VERIFIED FIXED on MacOS86 102708 apprunner.
Also tested on Linux6 102708 apprunner & Win98 102709 apprunner.
