A textbox with a fixed height and padding will have the initial cursor (when there is not text and it's first clicked) the full size of the textbox.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an HTML document with in it <input type="text" style="height: 300px; padding: 100px" />
2. Click in the textbox.
3. Observe the large cursor. Now type, see it go away.
Actual Results:  
I saw a large blinking cursor and then it go away when starting to type.

Expected Results:  
There should be a cursor based on the line-height of the text—as occurs when text is in the box.
Version: unspecified → 3.6 Branch
IN FACT, no padding is required. <input type="text" style="height: 300px" /> works just as well.
Just tested and it's still showing this issue in 3.6.10 on both Mac and Windows.
