I see the same behavior, but only on the first line of a handler that
uses "on <handler name>. IOW, if the first word of the handler is "on",
I can't put the cursor after the "o". It jumps back to before the "o".
It doesn't do this for any other line in the handler (not on the "end
<handler name>" line, nor on the first line of a function handler.
BTW, this problem only occurs when colorization is on. Try turning off
colorization, enter the script again, and see if it still happens.
