Eli--how fast are you clicking? Do you think that the clicks are being misinterpreted as double or triple clicks? Also, is the expected behavior "placing the caret" or "selection of one or more characters"? Thanks!
I've typically clicked with at least 1 second in between clicks. In this particular example, I believe that nothing should happen that's visible to the user; the invisible editing caret should be placed upon each click. Since the shift key isn't being held down (nor is a drag-selection being performed), the clicks shouldn't be joined to form a selection. Hope that helps.
Eli--This seems to work in my build right now. I think Simon fixed it. You should be able to tell from today's build. If it isn't fixed for you, please let me know because I have a very simple straight-forward fix that will fix it if for some reason Simon's fix doesn't fix all of the problem. Thanks!
Still present in today's build (1999092408, Mac OS only, of course.)
Eli--Ask to check this bug on Simon's development Mac. He has a simple fix which might improve this for you. If it's the fix, we can check it in and resolve this bug. If not, I'll look some more on Monday.

Verified that 14804 is a duplicate of this bug. This is too weird. I reproduced the problem using today's builds this morning. I can't reproduce it today, even after trying for 15 minutes. There must be some trigger. Will re-open this bug or 14804 if I can reproduce it. Or, better yet, I'll just go Simon's cubicle and drag him by the scruff of his BBEdit T-shirt... ;)
