* TITLE/SUMMARY
Mac doesn't retain caret x-coord

(writing up as convenience to mjudge)

* STEPS TO REPRODUCE
0) Launch Apprunner
1) From the Debug menu, select "Composer with Test Page"
2) Click between the "h" and "m" in the boldfaced "html" (second sentence)
3) Press the arrow key downwards a few times.

* RESULT
 - What happened

The caret won't retain the same x-coordinate, but will default to the left-hand
column of text. (Normally.)

 - What was expected

Caret should retain same x-coord while moving downwards.

* REGRESSION

something to do with the way the mac drag select out of a single line text field 
must select to beginning or end. I think this may have caused this regression.
