While I tested bug 82151 I found another oddity. Control and left arrow does no reach the first empty rows. To reproduce: Press enter a few times in the additional comments field in bugzilla. Then enter some text. Use control-left arrow to go back to beginning word by word. Expected result: Caret should reach beginning of the first line. What happens: Caret stops at the beginning of the first line that has text in it.
--> mjudge (caret/selection navigation)
Seeing on linux too. Confirming. It's rather minor bug, because you can use other keys to navigate the caret to the beginning.

Oops, sorry for that. I Just tested this bug and forgot to clear the comments field before CCing myself... Prog.
Fixed by the "phase 1" patch on bug 300131.
