From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0rc2)
Gecko/20020510
BuildID:    1.0rc2

the displayed cursor (vertical bar) in the url bar doesn't move in response to
mouse positioning or cursor key positioning.  the actual cursor position does
change, i can hit the right arrow key 3 times and then the delete key, and the
correct character in the url text is deleted.  but the displayed cursor is still
at the beginning of the text.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.get some text in the url bar
2.try to position the cursor (hit right arrow a few times)
3.note cursor position, still at beginning of text

i've only tested 2 platforms (3 computers).  the problem occurs on 2 linux
machines, both running Mandrake Linux 8.2, one running KDE 3.0 and one running
XFCE desktops.  on a windows 2000 machine, the problem does not occur.

I can confirm this. I believe this is a subset of the behaviour of bug 145213,
and therefore a duplicate of that bug.

fixed with new compile of mozilla 1.0rc2, using gcc 3.1-1 package on Mandrake
Linux , which has a fix for a memset problem in gcc.
