Build Identifier: 

When text size is enlarged past a certain point (using Bespin Drop-In 0.6.2), clicking does not work properly (may not move at all or move to wrong position). It does work accurately at different text sizes (from very small to medium large), but not particularly large ones.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enlarge text size considerably with Bespin sample.
2. Try to click onto a different line.
Actual Results:  
Doesn't move or may move inaccurately

Expected Results:  
Move to the correct position

No, in this case at least, no, because those relate to the cursor's appearance. This one is about limitations on where the cursor can go when an area is clicked (in an enlarged document).
Is this bug still present in the latest Bespin code?

I set the fontsize to 100 and increased the browsers fontsize by pressing CMD&+. The mouse selection was not correct then.

The Skywriter project has merged with's Ace project (the full server part of which is their Cloud9 IDE project). Background on the change is here:

The bugs in the Skywriter product are not necessarily relevant for Ace and quite a bit of code has changed. For that reason, I'm closing all of these bugs. Problems that you have with Ace should be filed in the Ace issue tracker at GitHub:
