nsCaret::GetGeometryForFrame ignores the nsresult of nsIFrame::GetPointFromOffset, but it returns an error and doesn't update the outparams if the frame is dirty. This position the caret rect as the start of the frame. I've never seen the caret actually get drawn there because we usually get another call to position the caret, but I've heard other people say that they've seen the caret jump to the start of a textbox (on Mac).

We invalidate the caret rect in both PresShell::WillDoReflow and PresShell::DidDoReflow, so I don't think this can cause any harm, but it will certainly save some painting, and maybe fix a visible bug.

I see the caret get drawn there while typing into the prompt() textbox on Mac OS X 10.5, for example.

Yeah, this reminds me that I was planning to file a bug on that, but I'm happy to see that you have a fix before I even file the bug!  :-)

I've never reproduced a problem here, if someone who can can think of a way to test this, then great!

To test this, we need to be able to capture the keypress event right after it's been handled by the editor.  This is, for example, a stack which shows GetPointFromOffset failing:

I really don't think this is possible to capture in an automated test...

Maybe we should resort to a Litmus test?
