Text boxes: odd behaviours

hrev51727 gcc2h

I noticed since some hrev, that in every text box of every app/window, is not possible let the text scroll by using the arrows on the keyboard; furthermore if we select the text using the mouse cursor (eg also to reach the end of the text), text will disappear. I made a quick video to explain these behaviours. Attacched.

Could be related to #13796.

Yeah, prolly #13796 is the root cause...

Any chance you can build Haiku yourself? If so it would be nice to test Hy Che's changes to see if it improves the behavior (and does not cause more problems)

    git fetch
    git cherry-pick b8c106d348dd2752524b5dd78557298f2d838af0
    git cherry-pick 355f9eaddfce420ced250bf0538a21a10b4ee36d

Then perform a build with these two changes included.

By pushing a new patch with the same "change-id" as the previous one, you can replace it. This is the preferred way to replace an obsolete patch. I think you can't otherwise close the older patches because I'm the owner (I migrated them from Trac), but I can do it. Please list changes I should close, then.
