I'm trying to edit and questions on stackoverflow, but when I click to move the cursor to a location or reselect a word, the cursor winds up far north of my click point. I need to do some more testing to see if it is a fixed distance. It seems to be fixed, instance-by-instance, but variable overall.


I noticed that this isn't happening consistently, which makes it difficult to reproduce and test; however, it seems to become worse as the text grows longer.

I've widdled it down to Dolphin, for one. It doesn't happen with Jota++, but it may happen in my S!Mail, sometimes. I'm using the TouchPal Keypad (Swype), Dolphin Browser. I think that it has something to do with TouchPal.
