Yes - seems to happen from time to time - and for me this goes back
to early Metacard days - as I have had the problem on Linux and MC.
It seems to happen rarely and in low memory situations which can be
made worse if you leave Rev / MC running for days at a time... I
always figured that I had done something to eat up memory or there
was something causing a memory leak. Since getting a new PowerBook
and lots of memory I have only seen it once or twice.
I have always thought it related to the other quirk - selecting a few
paragraphs of text in a field results in the odd line not being
selected or included in the pasted text - it is cut though :)
When either of these things start to happen I save, quit and restart
- as they are the sign of an immanent crash. I talked to Scott Raney
a few years back and he was aware of this - but it is so rare no-one
had ever managed to create a reproducible bug - believe me I tried -
that it is still hanging around there somewhere's I guess?
