When I try to change selection inside of DidXXX handler of nsIEditActionListener
interface then I'm fail.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
In instance you can try to execute next code line in DidInsertText() handler:


Selection should not be removed.

If you will try to execute the same code by using setTimeout() method then
selection will be removed.

Expected Results:  
Selection should be changed after calling of WillXXX method and before calling
of DidXXX.

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.

I'm not sure whether this is intentional behavior but I suppose when DidInsertText is called then selection should have been changed.
alexander, does this still fail?
