Details

(Whiteboard: [selection] [metro] p=5)

STR:
  0) Put some text into the clipboard
  1) Type some text into a text input box
  2) Note where the caret is
  3) Right-click somewhere else in the text input box

At this point you'll notice that the caret has not updated its position; it is still where it was before you right-clicked. However, selecting "Paste" from the context menu will cause the text to be pasted at the location where you right-clicked.

  4) Select "Paste"
  5) Note that the clipboard text is pasted at the location you right-clicked, not the caret position

I think we should update the caret position as soon as we receive the right-click, so that a user seeing a context menu has an accurate idea of what position in the text box her/his selected action will affect.

Looks like a platform bug since I see the same behavior on desktop.

Need to investigate where this is, may be in platform and may be desired for some reason.
