When we move text input caret position in response to touch input, we adjust touch coordinates up such that they are in the input vs below the lower boundary. However when dealing with text inputs that have a lot of white space, caretPositionFromPoint can return the wrong offsets for coordinates that land in the white space vs on text, messing up caret position. We should do a better job of centering here somehow to avoid this.
Updating this now that bug 865654 is fixed, the original problem reported is now WFM. We should add a test using this test case so that we can catch future breakage.
