Steps to reproduce:
- Visit
- Long tap on a textarea to get the context menu
- Tap on "Select All"

Expected result:
- All text selected in textarea and selection handles appearing at the right spot

Actual result:
- Text selection and selection handles appear briefly, but disappear as soon as the vkb has arrived.

Tested on the Galaxy Nexus, using latest trunk build.

I'm assuming this is a regression from bug 652168, but I might be wrong, since this is about selection handles, and that bug is about thumb controls.
I don't know why we dismiss the text selection handlers when VKB comes up (which causes page shrinking). Margaret might know it better as she worked on it a lot.

The selection handle bar from top it's on wrong position from text. The selection handle bar from bottom it's missing.

On some pages the selection handle bar from top it's missing and the selection handle bar from bottom it's on wrong position from text.
