Hi Chris,

I can verify the characters not being deleted, it seems to simply put 
the cursor back a character. Mac OS X 10.2 & 10.3 using Rev 2.1.2 is 
what I have seen it on. Workaround is to not use the delete key in the 
dialog, select all text and type gets around the problem. Perhaps this 
is a bug?
