In any form's field, eg Description on that page, type hello and watch carefully
the blinking cursor, hit the down-arrow: the blinking cursor has moved 1 pixel
to the right.

WorksForMe using Chimera/20020619. Stephane, which build are you using? Can you
reproduce this using a more recent nightly?

I can reproduce this in 0619, just try it in the additional comments field right
here. But it moves by one pixel, so you have to be watching very carefully to
even notice.

--> mjudge (selection/caret navigation)

I'm guessing that the shift is due to the fact that the caret is initially
attached to the right side of the textframe, and then after the down arrow it's
attached to the left side of the <br> frame.
