User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8

On the URL described, you see a big textarea containing some text already (fyi:
that is a quoted post). When you press shift (to select some text), and u hit
the edge of the textarea, the whole thing dissapears. It happens to me on every
valid textarea on the site, so i think it has to do with the way the textarea is
builded (CSS etc)

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to the URL i gave, you should see a Dutch website. The particular page u
are viewing allows you to reply on a thread, with a quote already filled in.
2. The big text-area holds the text u see above it, unparsed. It should start
with [quote]
3. After that, select some text, just get familiar with the select thing. Not to
insult you guys, but to be sure.
4. Accidently click the bottom edge (1px, in grey). Try it a few times. When u
correctly hit it, or drag it (im not sure) the whole box disappears.

Actual Results:  
As said, the box just goes away. The room it occupied goes empty.

Expected Results:  
Nothing. Just nothing.
